View Full Version : Alois Trancy

So Im planning to cosplay Alois Trancy. What I need help on is the pattern for his coat! I know he wears a frock coat...and when I search for one to buy, I can find one that looks like his without any issues. The problem is, I cant find a suitable pattern that resembles it enough to make it myself!

Does anyone know a pattern for a frock coat in the style of Alois'? Or any pattern that would work well for him? D:

Also, what material would you suggest for it?
Thanks in advance!

I'm in the same boat. I got the pattern figured out but not the fabric. I've asked about it here (http://www.cosplay.com/showthread.php?p=3917811) and gotten some feedback. I'm still figuring out which route to take.

I'm using this pattern (http://www.simplicity.com/p-5402-mens-costumes.aspx). The photo doesn't really resemble it but that's due to the type of fabric being used there. If you look at the line art, you see it's almost identical to Alois' jacket.
