Shirt/Frock Pattern.

The common shirt type frock is made from the same pattern as the common shirt, except that the frock is made a little longer, and usually from a slightly heavier material.

















As you can see, the collar shape varied with the maker.

Shirt pattern shown here from: Tidings from the 18th Century By Beth Gilgun.  This is a good book with more clothing patterns and information on a variety of 18th century items.
