Military Uniforms

18th Century Military Uniforms

If you belong to a military unit, and color matching is important, you may want to supply your own materials.

There are three main distinctions to be considered when pricing your uniform - the length of the coat, the amount and cost of lace and fabric, and the choice of buttons. Here are some examples that I have done for different units along with their approximate labor and material costs.
