Oderless,

It's no wonder you're confused. The breeches for the Pirate Era aren't on the website yet. You're likely looking at the 1630s Breeches pattern. Way too early, mate!

"Floss" is a kind of thread, but if you're making a seaman's breeches, you'd be best off not using it.

Keep watching this space and I'll announce when the Pirate Breeches pattern is available.

Thanks gof! I've been waiting for a coat that would fit the manner of Morgan. Luckily, Kass came along with these great patterns...

As we get all of ours done I hope we show them off here as well...

Hi all!

Just wanted to let you all know that the two men's patterns that were offered for preorder -- the 1680s Justacorps and the 1700s Frock Coat -- are printing now and will ship to those who preordered on Monday!

Also we have a third men's pattern printing and ready to ship on Monday. The 1670s-1710s Brandenburg or Great Coat. You can preorder it here: Page down to the bottom of this page.

The women's preordered patterns will print next week.

If you've ordered men's and women's patterns, they will ship together when the women's print.

Then we will have a whole new set of covers to tempt you with the rest of the GAoP lineup!

Good news, kids! The long-awaited Common Man's Jacket (aka "Sailor's Jacket") now has cover art. Which means we're drafting it as we speak and it is available for preorder.

Check it out (third pattern down):

The pattern will ship next week.

We had an unexpected delay shortly after I posted. :D

The pattern will be available at the end of March. I will post again when it's ready.

Is the short jacket pattern going to include slops, or is that another pattern set? I looked on Kass's site and didn't see the slops pattern, but did see other breeches, so I was just wondering.

The Sailor's Jacket pattern will only include the jacket. The Breeches and Slops pattern is separate and also forthcoming.

Well, just heard good things about RH patterns. Because I´m more into the 1760´s, I use patterns from KK and JPR... but if I will start sewing and golden age outfit RH will be my first choice!!!!! ;)

I'd like to announce that the Bodiced Gown (RH707) and the 1670s-1720s Stays (RH711) are now in stock and ready to ship. If you preordered either of these patterns, you will receive them shortly. If you have been waiting for them to materialize before placing your order, now's your chance! :blink:

I've been following this thread (and your web site, Kass) with the greatest of interest. My first love is black powder shooting (the earlier the better), and I've loved Baroque music since I was small. It was probably only a matter of time until I got into the clothing of the period.

There is a d-mned annoying gap betwen the ECW and the F&I war, both with regards to firearms and to clothing. Your Age Of Piracy range fills this nicely. I was wondering, however, if and when you were planning on adding a Baroque-era waistcoat to go with the justacorps? (You know... the sort of thing a well-dressed buccaneer who had temporarily hit it rich might wear into town. I had it in mind to make two -- one fancy one, and one of the plainer sort to wear as a hunting vest.)

How long were they? Did they have pockets? What did they *look* like? What goes underneath a 1670's-80's justacorps? And more to the point, where can I get the pattern for one? From you, I hope...?

Hi Jim,

Thank you for your compliments on my site. Keep checking back for some exciting new changes this summer that I know you're going to love. :)

About the waistcoats, yes we plan on producing a pattern for waistcoats from 1700 to 1725. Just haven't finished it yet. It will be announced on the website (and likely here too) when it is available.

But if you're looking for a waistcoat to wear under the 1680s Justcorps, the waistcoat is included in the pattern. It's really just the same pattern as the Justacorps but without cuffs on the sleeve ends. So if you're interested in the 1680s Justacorps pattern, you don't have to wait for the waistcoat pattern to come out to have both garments. And the historical notes cover both garments as well, so all your questions should be answered there.

Thanks again for your enquiry,

Kass
