Having just returned from an arduous journey to the colony of Pennsylvania, I thought I might post a small update.The buttonhole process is half done on the mid-18th century coat.
To be honest I haven't really decided how the cuffs and collar of this garment should look. Plenty of options out there. Mostly I am trying to decide how lazy I am. If my button supply holds out and I am a masochist I can add four buttons (and faux buttonholes) to each cuff. I guess that beats sailor-style cuffs that actually work.
So no need for a collar. This would even be a good excuse to leave the cuffs plain, but none of my other civilian coats have buttons so......
Wish I could stop thinking about the stripey waistcoat on Collet's Sergeant.
