Historical Fortnightly #9: Flora and Fauna

The Challenge: Flora and Fauna
Fabric: Poly taffeta I think
Pattern:  Flora!
Year:  mid 18th Century
Notions:Just the fabric and the thread
How historically accurate is it? The cut and the pattern of the fabric are both accurate but I machine sewed the entire thing and it is 100% dead dino
Hours to complete:one!
First worn:Fort Fred, April 27th
Total cost: Maybe $10? I don't remember. I bought the fabric at Jomars a couple of years ago.

Here is my inspiration image (aka, the extant garment I based my jacket off of):

I did the cuffs differently simply because the fabric I had refused to behave.
