Federal Fatigue Blouses-
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.
