Hey everyone. I know this is kinda a simple question but I need help. I've been sitting on this idea about cosplaying America from Hetalia in his Revolutionary War outfit. Not sure how to go about doing so. I've looked for patterns online but I've came up short. I might not be looking in the right places for it. I would think that someone would have a pattern for all those reenactment groups and what not. I know I could always alter a simaliar design but I only will do that if I can't find a pattern. So any help will be wonderful ^^

I've looked around before for that outfit since it was one I considered. I thought Butterick 3072 (http://butterick.mccall.com/b3072-products-180.php?page_id=916) was pretty close, yes there is some alteration required but for the most part it's just choosing the appropriate colors and adding the white criss-cross strips.

Heaven firings's suggestion looks awsome! There's also a histocial costuming guide made specially for America and England in their revolutionary outfits.

This pattern is what both my England any myself based our Revolutionary uniforms off of. I'd suggest looking at Historical references for any changes needed but this is as close as you'll probably get for current patterns.
