Re: [Uniforms] Materials in Uniforms

I don't know about other eras but regarding Confederate uniforms I have seen an account of uniforms being made of different dye lots - the 8th Louisiana recieved uniforms from the State of Louisiana in Fall 1861. The effect led one observer to comment that the combination of shades made them look like harlequins. Can't recall ever reading any Confederate accounts of uniforms made from pieces of different material.
