These breeches were worn in the  1700s and early 1800s.  Usually made of broadcloth or  linen, they were also worn in leather and were buttoned or  buckled just below the knees or tied with a draw string.   In the fur trade the legs were extended but pants kept the  drop front, the full gathered seat and the gussets in the  back of the waistband.

Variations are given in the pattern for knee closing and  leg length and it comes in waist sizes 30 through 42.

The pattern is easy to use and comes complete with a  glossary of terms and a section on “Working with Leather”  so that almost anyone will be comfortable using this pattern.
