|This was made as a commission for a client recently. I was happy to make this as I'd always wanted to make a really high quality FMA uniform. |
Made from real Navy Wool and lined for comfort. Jacket includes two welted breast pockets, hand braided military braid and hand stitched braid on shoulders. Carefully picked subtle buttons were used for the decoration and the stars were hand painted. Bias binding was hand made from a heavy duty cotton to match the skirt waistband perfectly. Heavy duty poppers were used for the closures on the jacket. Commissioner requested not to have a specific character so the uniform colours are not included on this uniform.
The skirt was made using the same wool and matching lining as the jacket. The buttons were made using the same fabric as the bias binding and the waist band so they would match. The skirt buttons onto the trousers so the skirt doesn't shift when being worn.
The trousers were made with the same wool again and are high waisted to match the length of the jacket. The bottom of the legs are drafted wide so they look better when worn under boots. The hem is hand stitched and the length is custom to the commissioner. Includes two good sized pockets which are overlocked inside for durability.
Updated to include a lighter suiting version of the uniform. These are less expensive and easier to wear in the summer.
