My son's newest suit, for our Family Portrait this year. Used Burda (2461 2452) patterns to do it as a base and adjusted the pattern as I cut while looking at historical patterns online. The fabric for the frock coat is from Hobby lobby, and the waistcoat and breeches are ups-cycled kimono from Yoko Dama.













More details on the sewing on my blog, but most of the pictures are all here Cheesy

I would probably do the same thing in such a fine new suit with so many buttons!
