General Washington, looking for a quick, inexpensive uniform, began issuing hunting frocks to certain regiments soon after the Battle of Bunker Hill & they continued to be used by the Continental army until the end of the war.

The seamstress is Mardell Weisenburger from Fine Tailoring & Dressmaking. She has been sewing clothes all her life since 1976, focusing on 18th century clothing since 2004. Mardell cares very much about authenticity & has taken workshops & researches extant garments to further her knowledge.
