I’m very pleased to be offering this excellent pattern by fellow California based patternmaker Laughing Moon.
Men’s Narrow Fall Front Breeches, c. 1790-1820 Also known as Small Falls.
The pattern maker based this pattern on a pair of extant breeches from the Regency period that were in her possession. You can view the photos of the original extant garment on her Pinterest board.
