Civil War Outerwear

I decided that the kids needed to have warm outerwear for this year's reenactment since the weather is unpredictable in September and we were planning on camping at the event. I was also making Dan a new pair of pants with plans to make him a great coat. Our plans took a sharp turn as the Civil War "coordinators" decided to not invite my parents (who had been the coordinators until these people took over) because they didn't follow the rules (big lie!). So we decided to just do a "walk-on" and show up for a little bit on Saturday. It ended up raining the WHOLE weekend! So it wasn't that big of a loss to not do the whole weekend. We still did a walk-on, but didn't stay long.

Emily's wool wasn't very thick, so I lined her cape.

This shows the outer fabric and the lining.
