Jacket/Coat v.2

Second version of the work jacket, for the special project.  This is sort of the test version - I probably should have made a muslin out of cheap fabric, but it just wouldn't drape the same.  The design is a sort of a combination of the French work jacket - the bleu de travail - and an American chore coat, with just a bit of military.

Ingredients: olive drab cotton duck cloth, unbleached sailcloth waist and cuff lining, vintage 1940's cats eye buttons.
