I did have some grey fabric that worked after all - it has no green undertones, but looks fine with the M/59 buttons anyway in small amounts and will match several other garments as well.


Black cotton twill, the piping is a black and beige shot cotton/rayon fabric that reads as grey, and I have posted about the signalist badge before.

Oh, and I finally got my hair up in a halfway decent Swiss braid. Far from great, but definite progress, and for once I feel that my hair might actually be too short - odd, considering that I've been thinking about cutting it off and trying to go back to my natural colour lately.

That must have been a treasure trove! Great that he didn't throw things out, my family has got rid of a lot of clothes I would have loved to see in real life.
I'm definitely interested, yes, but I'm not sure what I would do with it.

Well thats my grest fear tht some cousin will just toss everything out.I'm attemptint to go throgh it. My Grandmother left me her 19th-early 20th century hats. so i could find a home for them
She said in her will that her daughter grew up in 50's and 60's and thus had no taste.

The shirt is small for a man. I'm thinking you might like the buttons or wear it learn from the pattern sewing ? Dunno. trade you for cap ?
