And we were doing so well at having a conversation about finding info on WWII uniforms for costuming...
By the way, I'm piecing together my pattern from tons of different patterns right now, but I found a great pattern for the base of a Soviet kitel jacket - Butterick 4929. The collar and back are cut perfectly although the sleeves need some of the fullness taken out, and the front needs darts instead of fitting. I'm looking at... I believe it was the A design with the sort of skirty bit around the waist. Well, the pattern needs modified quite a bit, but it's a great base.
Anyone seen a good hat pattern that would work for a WAC hobby hat?
