So. I helping everyone in our group out with their Kuro cosplay's and today we spent 3 hours in a fabric store with no luck looking for patterns.
This is the jacket we are pattern hunting for: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v711/esheza/ezlae.jpg
What I am looking for essentially is just a jacket with long sleeves, but most importantly, something WITH A MATCHING COLLAR AND FOLD OVER. I have major issues every time I modify those two parts and wish to to do it again. D:

have you checked thrift stores too? It looks kind of like a trench coat with large sleeves. Have you considered altering a pattern?

Well...I'm getting ready to make that jacket, and what I'm going to do is use a Matrix Pattern, because it folds over, and the few alterations I'm going to have to do is the collar, sleeves, and I might just make the back of the coat 1 piece. But I shall see..I hope I've helped some.

Simplicity has a women's duster pattern (look in the costume offerings) that looks pretty similar. All you really have to do is make the sleeves wider and longer.

I know this is no help whatsoever, but in order to make my undertaker cosplay, I'm putting to "fast ans easy" patterns together. One with the coat and the other for the sleeves...

I used this pattern but I did have to modify it merger the panels in the pattern to the front and back as one solid shape instead of 2 piece each. I also altered the collar line and drafted the new shape after sewing the body together. Also drafted a sleeve pattern since they have to be way larger and bell shaped.
This pattern might be an easier starting point since the sleeves is one piece rather then 2 pieces.
For the under shirt I used a pattern similar to these but simplified them again to a dickey with sleeve to cut down on the layers.

The only pattern I can think of off the top of my head is this one.
You'd still have to modify the collar and sleeves, though. Sleeves would be easy. Just extend them. The collar you would have to play with. Perhaps you can find a pattern with that collar and use that collar.
It also has more seams then you would need. If you want less seams but the same look, make a mock-up and then just rip the seams you want to keep and use that as your new pattern (keeping the other seams intact). Yes, it would take more time but I always think making a mock-up is worth it. You don't want to use your good fabric and realize that the pattern isn't working the way you would like it to.

I used this one:
I used view D for both the over coat and the undershirt with the high collar.
But, I did have to heavily modify the pattern to lengthen the coat, make the sleeves wider, and achieve the entire shape of the front of the coat.

I found this pattern today while looking for something else. It is the closest pattern I've seen thus far.
