Now with size layers.
This is not a printed pattern.  This is a download of a digital file.  You will receive a link to several files immediately  upon purchase sent to the email used to purchase.  You will receive several file in letter size:  How to Print, the front and back cover, and the sewing instructions.  You will also receive several A0 size files.  You will receive 3 sets of A0 pattern piece files:  one file is the entire pattern, one is just View A, and one is just View B.  These files are in black and white with dashed lines and size layers.  This means you can print just the View you want in just the size you want, or the whole pattern.  You will also receive the whole pattern in color with solid lines.
This pattern is not tiled but you can tile it yourself using the "poster" option in Adobe Acrobat.  This means you can print just the View and size you want on your home printer if you desire.  Or you can send the download and have a copy shop print what you want on full size paper.   You should not have to pay more than US$2-3 to print an A0 size page.  Here is a link to instructions on how to use the poster option on the Adobe help pages.
​Pattern #124
MENS Late Georgian TAILCOAT 1795 - 1810
Sizes 34-56 All in the Pattern with Size Layers

View A is single breasted with only two buttons meant to be able to be buttoned. There are only three seams in the entire coat body; one at center back and two at the side backs. The sleeves are attached at the natural shoulder and are somewhat long, with the cuffs extending to cover part of the hand. There are two pleats at the back where the tails are attached to the back. The back tails
are not stitched to one another but instead overlap. The coat front is cut rather severely back from the waist, a style left over from when men wore swords. The bottom length is to the knee. The coat is fully lined with silk lining in a matching or contrasting color. The upper center back lining is the only piece that is made of muslin. The collar is a very high standing collar with no fall. There are two tail pockets that are accessed from the outside of the coat, and there are pointed flaps that cover the
access to the pockets. The sleeve has a simple cuff. View B differs from View A at the front, cuff, pocket flap, and the collar. The front is double breasted with a falling lapel and the fronts are not cut away as far to the hem. The collar, also very high, has a stand and a fall. There is also a different tail pocket flap with a simpler design than View A. The bottom of the front of View B has two cutting options:  One is cut squarely away from the front edge and the other has a rounded cut. The coat uses the same fabric to line the fronts as the outer fashion fabric. The sleeve cuff has a small overlap. The cuffs on the sleeves can be interchangeable and there is a third cuff option that can be used on either coat, call the Mariner's cuff.  The back and the sleeves are the same for both Views.
