A coat requires about 3 yards (12 quarters) of brown or blue wool, faced with 1 yard (4 quarters) of red wool. White serge lines the body & requires about 2 yards (8 quarters) but white flannel is an approximation of serge. The sleeves are lined with a yard of unbleached linen. A piece (1/4 yard) of linen buckram is required along the front. All yardages are only suggestions & are at your discretion.
Notions required include a skein of unbleached 16/2 for attaching buttons & unbleached 35/2 linen thread for coat construction. The facing buttonholes require 1 card madder red silk buttonhole twist & the sleeve & pocket flap buttonholes need brown silk buttonhole twist or blue silk buttonhole twist. Two large hooks & eyes are used at the front & 26, 23 mm plain flat turret back pewter buttons (1″ plain flat pewter buttons are our closest) with 4, 18 mm plain flat turret back pewter buttons (3/4″ plain flat pewter buttons) on the cuffs for a total of 8.
