Making an Imperial Officer Uniform part 4

Today I bit the bullet and cut the real fabric. Since we actually got the basic body pattern done it was time to take it to that next step. ( EEP!!) This fabric has a grain and a slight pattern as well as a right side and a wrong side so cutting it out means taking care to get it right. It's a green cotton twill for a "green" officer uniform"
The basic pattern laid out so you can see what the pieces look like.
The front ( inside out) the actual right side is a lighter colour. The white thread is a tacked seam only. It will be replaced by the right colour of thread later once we get the fitting done for the sleeves and the rank cylinder pockets-.

View from the back. There is some slight puckering but that's more due to the issues I had fitting the side part with the back princess line. It's curved shape means the seam has to be eased in and that will take some practice on my part.
