Quick Thought 2:

This is part of a cross-blog collaboration to create a replica MTC uniform as seen in the British drama Foyle’s War. All previous posts can be found under the page entitled “The MTC Uniform: A Foyle’s War Costume Collaboration.”

Here are the fabric swatches my mother brought back from New York.

We are still keeping an eye out for similar fabrics in the more immediate vicinity (i.e. Dallas….Houston….. Austin… Wherever our adventures take us, really.)

The trick is finding a fabric similar to the original, considering there were at least two versions of am’s MTC uniform. One was featured primarily in the earliest episodes, and seems more brown.

The other sometimes looks khaki and sometimes straight up olive.
