On this page are options that are offered with this pattern, outside pockets are a special request, as the pocket is on the inside of the left side of the Sack Coat according to the pattern.

From the book “Civil War Collector’s Encyclopedia” pages 281 – 296 (in brief)

Confederate: The Confederate Government was never able to furnish enough uniforms and many of the Southern volunteers were told to furnish their own uniforms. There were a varied assortment of homespun clothing made locally, in all forms, colors and fabric types. Some Confederates would steel uniforms from the dead Union Soldiers and wear these, which caused problems, other Confederates had their wives make them for them, out of what was available to them at the time.

Union or U.S.: Made of a dark blue flannel, loose fitting with or without a lining, stand and fall collar. See scanned image on this page below.
