Errors in instructions, badly designed headach I had to get creative to solve the several gaps in the instructions. If I’d wanted to make my own pattern from scratch I wouldn’t have bought McCall’s M4745 Men’s Civil War Costumes pattern.

Great for the basics Look at the smaller picture for a better idea of what it will look like when you’ve sewn your jacket and trousers. And remember that you’ll need to get patterns for underclothes, shirts, socks and hats elsewhere. And you’ll need to find a belt and boots. And of course a (probably replica) gun, and maybe a cavalry sword. This pattern is more for a halloween costume than a serious reenactment.

Hunchback pattern It took a long time to arrive at my doorstep because it got lost somewhere in the customs environment (I maybe shouldn’t have ordered something resembling a uniform). A second one arrived very soon after contacting Amazon -thanks- , but the pleasure didn’t last very long.
