Confederate States of America (Occupied)
Dear Ambassador Rose,
The sheer genius of your instructions for tailoring our dress uniforms lies in their simplicity:
It may prove cost effective to buy used cotton sheets from the local thrift shops and then dye them to appropriate color of gray. I would like to suggest using RIT Dye colors Dark Green and Cocoa Brown mixed as shown in the link below (color 361): http://www.ritdye.com/colorit_color_formula_guideAny true confederate, from the lowliest private to the most illustrious general, could easily follow such instructions. We've been making outfits out of sheets for over a century. It was very perceptive of you to understand this and tailor your instructions to take advantage of it.
Gen. JC Christian, patriot
