Description
Originally a judges robe, I have tailored it in various areas to make it like the Reloaded coat. This included reducing the width of certain parts so it contoured around the waist, also cutting out some of the inner fabric and together with some stiffener fabric sewing on a collar.
I used sewn on velcro strips in order to close the coat up. This turned out to be a better solution than using buttons.
