My small contribution

Article about: The cap will be left as is. Good decision, I had the same restoration problem before, but your cap is more nice, and your holes not realy important and hidden on the top cap.

    I took this photo yesterday afternoon. (Btw, the mannequinn arrived yesterday.) Now, I won't post this old rag in this thread until it has been restored. (But I think it looks pretty good already.)
    Hi Friends,

    My tunic is now almost fully restored into its original condition.
    Only original thread and cloth has been used, and the sewing machine has been an old Pfaff. The tunic is still with the tailor (who I'd like to call Master), however, I expect it home very soon. I will post some more photos of it later. I hope you like it as much as I do.

    Nice job Anders S.
    I started all over again after nearly 25 years !
    It is also my policy of buying things at the lowest price and the lowest risk.
    So I ended up with the ground dugs and the denazified items.
    Chances to run in to copy's are smaller, and I get to know the details even better, and thise could only upgrade the collection at a next stage.
    Also glad to see that restorations are appreciated by some! No offence ment to those who don't!!
    Always looking for Belgian Congo stuff!
    cheers

    Thanks, no, I'm a teacher.

    The finished tunic has arrived home. It will always be a restored "put together" tunic but at least I know what I have.

    Thanks, I must also correct myself... I'm not a teacher at the moment, I'm currently reading at the University. The cap will be left as is.
    Btw, the nature is my garden.

    i must have been in a coma to miss this great thread anders, to go to such length and trouble, even down to the original thread must be loudly applauded, and my admiration also goes to your master tailor, he deserves the prefix. well done indeed , its a beauty
    Thank you very much, and I agree, all credit goes to the master tailor (and the person who helped me to get the tunic to him).
