The Victorian Gentleman
Draping the MidNineteenth-Century TailÂ Coat 1. Follow directions for the Frock Coat above through step #10. 2. Cut and prepare a piece of muslin the same as for the skirt of the Morning Coat. Pin the skirt to the waist seam of the top as far to the side as the design indicates. Mark the length of the front of the skirt (usually between one and one-half and two inches) and cut away all but one inch SA below it. Clip into the corner point and continue pinning the waist seam around to the SB seam.
