18th century Breeches

I finished up the adjustments on the mock-up of Jeremy’s breeches in some leftover black corduroy material. My fiance has bravely said he will wear 18th century dress for our wedding!

Being me, I couldn’t just make a mock-up of drop front breeches (10+ hours of work) and leave them unfinished. I quickly machine finished them & added closures with grommets to make a pair he can easily use for pirate events that are not requiring complete historical accuracy. I’m tempted to fully line the final pair but will have to account for that in the final patterning.

Our wedding outfits will be inspired by the 18th century but I will not limit myself strictly to adhere to historical accuracy. This is my wedding and not a period event :) That being said, I’m really enjoying researching this project and learing about this era.
