    matching grey cloth woud be ok, too but I think I started a very long lasting project...

    I think you've started a long project too!
    Personally I'd leave it alone.......it will never be original if you repair it, plus finding the material will be both expensive and long winded.
    As I said , I've been looking for reseda green fabric for what seems a lifetime. All the remnants I've found have either been the right colour but wrong texture or vice versa. Then there's the issue of wear on the fabric.
    In short I think it'll be a cold day in help before I find the right fabric.
    The hand stitched collar on your bluse doesn't offend me at all and I've seen this kind of repair more than once.
    The original collar looks quite course on your piece........ Any chance on better photos.

    Hi,
    the problem is that this tunic became part of a theater and costumes store- so I do not know what is original.

    e.g. shoilderboards had been added but in an absolutely wrong shape. You have civil buttons, pebbled buttons, imperial german buttons and Stahlhelbund buttons.

    The collar has not been sewn on very well and you have severe creases in the fabric. It does not look very professional...
