This is the second Victorian style coat from wool crepe. I manipulated the pattern by narrowing the waist and sleeves, made in-seam pocket and reshaped the collar. I think it looks a bit neater and more angular than the original. The vintage brass military buttons look nice against the drab blue. With the cap I thought it looked a bit Western Front.
