Finally one of the Patterns you have been demanding from Eagle's View! The quality and detail of the Man's Waistcoat and Vest Pattern should prove worth the wait.

The 18th century Waistcoat was styled with a high neck and many buttons down the front and was widely worn by both civilians, para-military outfits and the established military. Made of fine wool broadcloth or linen and lined with fine linen or cotton, the waistcoat comes nine to ten inches below the waist.

This pattern also has a later (18th-19th century) styled waist length Vest with a V-neck and small collar variation. Made out of broadcloth or fine cotton it is reminiscent of the Mississippi River-boat Gambler; if constructed from rougher materials, it is the style commonly worn for everyday wear. Many men wore Vests when they entered the fur trade and continued to wear them during their sojourn in the hills.
