Hello!

I'm making up a paletot for Gettysburg and have been shopping around for styles. I've fallen in love with the double breasted, velvet trimmed style with small, shallow notched lapels, but most of the illustrations I've seen of it have shown it as being part of a sort of sacque-petticoat combination, not a stand-alone outer garment.

What do you all think, would a shorter paletot in that style be appropriate?  I haven't found a lot of cdvs or extant garments showing it so I'm a little leery.

Maybe I'm missing something, but all but the second one look like standalone garments.  The only reason that may be a set is because of the similar line of trim.

Same as your third link, but with description. No mention of matching the dress or skirt.

I agree with Ginger; any of these would work as standalone garments.

Thank you all!  I feel a lot bit more confident now.

If my pattern is a basic jewel neck paletot (Kayfig, I think), should I just draft a basic lapel?  The Francesca style revers look manageable and very sharp.

Go ahead and see what you can do! There's no harm in trying.
