A jacket inspired by the uniforms of US, England, and France using style elements from the 19th century through WWI. I created it from a home drafted pattern and an old white army blanket from a thrift shop.
White wool blanket, dyed in coffee with a vinegar mordant. Soaked in vinegar for 1 hr, then wrung out (not rinsed) then submerged in a vat of coffee for 8-10 hours. Washed in soap and water and hung to dry. Lined with canvas WWII issued army shelter half (only had one half and was badly damaged). Silver toned buttons from Walmart.
