18th C. Men’s Patterns from LACMA

Thanks to the GBACG list for the heads up — LACMA has put up some scaled patterns for some men’s 18th century garments that you can download for free.  The banyan in particular is really cool.  Loren/bauhausfrau mentioned on LJ that the curators said  they may be doing the woman’s 18th c. redingote (which I hope is the stripey one with big buttons that I can’t find a picture of online but that made me swoon when I saw it in the catalogue) – cross your fingers!

    Catherine – yes! I LOVE that dress! It’s the tiny stripes and the huge buttons.

    Hopefully there are enough Big Honkin’ Buttons to go around!
