I have been trying forever to talk my dad into reenacting and he wasn't interested until recently when he started worrying about my mom and my sisters being out there all by ourselves. The thing is though I have to sew his wardrobe before our next event. I have a sack coat, shirt, and drawers patterns, but that is it. I was looking for some suggestions into trouser and vest patterns? My dad is tall (well over six feet) and given the amount of time I have available, I don't want to deal with a pattern like Period Impressions which tend to be unclear in their instructions.
My dad is not going to let us go to our next event unless he is there to be the big "protector" so I need a can't fail patterns that would be correct and fit a tall man. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
