Confederate Enlisted Frock Coat
So, here is the Confederate Enlisted Frock Coat that I finished for my brother last month. I am so pleased with how it came out, and more in how it fits. Ben loves it, and has planned to do the topstitching and buttonholes himself. It is made of a gray/tan jean wool with navy wool collar and cuffs. Lined with cotton and wool breast pads (shown in the bottom photo). Now that I have successfully finished Ben's I may be a little more inclined to tackle a Civilian Frock for hubby. However, I must complete pants, shirt, vest, and drawers first.
