Civilian coats are much easier. One can do what they like (within the confines of history) with the collar, buttons, and tail length. The tan wool coat with green paisley lining fits nicely on my slim fifteen year old dancers.
Tan coat: completed! Notice the buttons from Jas. Townsend.
The gorgeous black wool coat I also made with long tails. It's such a beautiful wool I can't wait to see it on my gentlemen.
Black tails with grey lining.
Next project: knee breeches.
