View Full Version : Pattern for Alois jacket?

09-05-2010, 09:14 PM
I'm cosplaying Alois from Kuroshitsuji II and I have no idea how to go about making his jacket. He has a coat that looks like this (http://i129.photobucket.com/albums/p240/anime4ever102/Kuroshitsuji/Collar.jpg) and this (http://i129.photobucket.com/albums/p240/anime4ever102/Kuroshitsuji/Back-of-Jacket.jpg). Does anyone know where I can find a pattern for something similar?:cool:

I'm not sure of patterns that match exactly but if you have some prior sewing and pattern modification experience then you could use the one I'm using Simplicity 2525 http://www.simplicity.com/p-3073-misses-costumes.aspx

Like I said it's not an exact match so what you'd have to do is lengthen the front of jacket B and then for the back (which gets a bit more complicated) you would make the pattern so the tails are one piece instead of two (and you would make them straight across instead of at an angle) also you would have to make the lower half wider so you would have enough room for the double pleated thing Alois has in the pack of his jacket. You can pleat it either by actually pleating it which might not give you the right look or adding darts (which is what I am going to do) You'd also have to add an extra part to the collar so you'll have the standing up portion of it as well but that's not overly difficult so not too much to worry about.
If you can find a more exact pattern it would be much better. The reason I'm using this one is because I already have it for whatever reason. But like I said if you have modded patterns before this shouldn't be too much of an issue because it's not an overly difficult pattern to make to begin with. But if your a beginner I would recommend something different.

This is really great, and thanks! But unfortunately, I am quite the beginner, so I might try something else. However, as a last resort, I'll try this. Especially if I can find a local friend to help~

I am thinking of using this (http://www.lafnmoon.com/frock_coat.html) pattern. Would I double pleat it with darts?
