Civil War Sack Coat

I finished Rich's new sack coat today. Finished sewing on his Corporal's chevrons. I bought the sack coat kit and chevrons from Wambaugh and White. The pieces for the coat are cut out and sent to you with instructions, thread, and beeswax. It was a challenge, but I think it turned out pretty well for my first sack coat. Every stitch was handsewn. There are a few places I would have liked to have laid a little flatter, etc., but I'm overall pretty pleased.
