I would make this in two separate pieces.

First, make the cape and the tall collar. A pattern like one of the following may help you get the cape and collar shapes:

That collar is pretty specific - you'll need to do some modifications to any pattern you use to get the height and the long lapels.

For the second part, the clasp, make a separate triangular shaped piece. Attach it (either permanantly, by sewing, or by a button or other attachment) under the cape collar on either side of the cape front opening.
