Amending greatcoat into a frock coat

Postby stevegb » Sat Feb 14, 2015 1:39 pm

Hi! I'm new to costume making, my experience thus far being fairly limited. I'd like to make a naval frock coat though as part of a pirate costume.

I have a greatcoat that looks quite similar to a frock coat except for the longer front. Does anybody have experience of turning a greatcoat into a frock coat? Is it more involved than cutting the front to shape and re-hemming? I am comfortable sewing the decorative frills and new buttons once I have the shape all worked out.

Thank you
