View Full Version : Looking for Akito Jacket Pattern

06-06-2011, 01:41 PM
Does anyone know where I could find a pattern? I am trying to be as cheap as possible since I want to cosplay him, but I also wanna still live where I am at now.
I know where I'll be going to get my materials, and I somewhat have an idea of how I will amke it, but the jacket is the hard part... I wanna make a home made pattern but not sure how...like if i should have someone trace my body on paper, then I put in the details on it after... idk.

My mom and I used a pattern for a tank top as a starter, and use the sleeves from the Matrix coat (and made the hood pattern from scratch).

Though I suggest using a hoody pattern and modifying it to be what you need. So just lengthen the sleeves and add a zipper if the pattern doesn't include a place for the zipper.

generally how patterns are made is you start with a base and modify it. Especially for something like his jacket, its better if you do like MDA said and get a hoodie pattern. These may be challenging to find so I would recommend a simple hooded coat and yes it is pretty straightforward to lengthen a sleeve just make sure you test the pattern first so you don't do like I did with akito and make the sleeve hole too small for your hand
