Pattern used was the Gallarock Trans-Mississippi Shell Jacket pattern.
(with a few minor alterations and additions such as the epaulettes, pointed cuffs, no exerior pocket, and 9 buttons instead of 6)
For the piping fabric I used some red wool flannel that was left over from my Garabaldi ensemble. I thought it turned out to be the perfect color of red against the grey wool. It's very nice the way the piping finishes off the uniform - gives it some color and flare without being showy. :)
