New Cloth

Last monday I ordered cloth from Hainsworth and it just arrived Wednesday. I ordered three yards of Khaki Whipcord for my WWI second lieutenant jacket and cap. I can't wait to get started working with my new cloth, but first I'm going the make a mockup of the jacket and cap to test my pattern.

The cloth I'm using for my mockup is a cotton twill, with a similar weight to the Khaki Whipcord.

This week I also purchased some wool cloth from my local fabric shop. The cloth below is intended for two sets of a waistcoat and trousers.

Brown plaid wool cloth. I might get more of this cloth for a coat.
