This stylish man is de riguer in 1906. Companion male to lady in pattern 4020. Made in silk and wool, this costume would be most effective in cotton, and in black silk as a modern or contemporary groom. I would like to say this is challenging. There is a lot of detail built into the suit. I have completed the sample in difficult fabrics, but softer cottons would be an excellent substitution. (Especially for a beginner) The booklet includes patterns, directions and diagrams, for pants, shirt, vest, morning coat and hat. There are directions for a cane, though one is not pictured.
