Question: I can see the pattern pages but they print doll size. How can I scale them up to print on my home printer. Answer: The A0 size pattern pages are meant to be printed on large format printers. However they can be printed the correct size on a small home printer by Adobe Acrobat Reader by using the poster option. Here is a link to instructions on how to use this option on the Adobe help page.

MENS Late Georgian TAILCOAT 1795 - 1810
WITH 3 COLLAR AND LAPEL OPTIONS
Sizes 34-56 All in the Pattern
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.
