A pair of Georgian breeches, in fashionable and, nowadays rare, cotton needle cord. Needle cord is a lighter variety of corderoy and both textiles were used in the period - particularly for every day attire.
This pair is a result of my recent redrafting and re-sizing of the pattern and as I am working on improving my breeches making skills, I will have a few of them appearing here whenever I have time to play with self improvement :-)
As it is a practice sample, it might not be up to my usual standard, but it is perfectly wearable - and offered at a reduced cost.
