Federal Contract Blouse:

Lined and unlined available. These coats are totally sewn in Dark blue thread w/ exceptions to the buttonholes and sleeve linings.

Federal Fatigue Blouses-  The federal fatigue blouse is probably the most comfortable outer garment used during the civil war. While most Fatigue Blouses are seen on the enlisted men and NCOs, some officers purchased these for field wear.  We have chosen to make a couple variations of fatigue blouses.  Even though all blouses were made off of one government pattern, Each blouse differs slightly from the other in construction.  In order to save material some contractors implied some different techniques into each blouse, However these are not pattern changes.  Fatigue Blouses were made from a Indigo Dyed wool flannel of about 14 oz with a 2/2 diagonal twill weave.  Blouses were made lined and unlined with the lined being more common.  Original blouses show many variations in lining material from Linsey Woolsey, wool flannel, cotton jean to even checked wool/cotton materials.  These are just some of the linings you can expect to see in our fatigue blouses.
