Holy crap this is the best thing ever! Combining two of my favourite things *w*

Where did you get the uniform/ how did you make it? I'm planning on cosplaying Sharpe some time myself. ^^

Jacket Progress 2 (Posted 21st October 2011)

I couldn't find a good looking type of fabric strips to sew on for the front loops, so I went with velvet ribbon just to be snazzy. 8 metres of velvet ribbon has gone into this jacket so far! Craaaazy! I have also added the collar and black cuffs. I just have to add the braid and buttons, then its done. :)

(sorry for crummy webcam photo)

Jacket pattern (Posted 9th October 2011)

So I started making the pattern for my jacket. I wanted it to look like the design of the original 95th Rifles jacket, including the shape of the jacket and the site of all the seams. Unfortunately, it is impossible to find the exact pattern they have used for the original jackets, so instead I made my own.

The pattern I made was adapted from the Burda 2471 Napoleon jacket pattern, with the shoulder brought round and the back panel cut and shaped properly to fit the proper design. I hope the extra effort looks good when its finished!
