You can hire out a patch maker to make the patch for you (if I remember correctly, someone on the forum does them). If that's not in your budget, I'd make an iron-transfer and call it a day unless you're willing to spend a ton of hours embroidering.
Try using a Cheongsam pattern as a base pattern for the top. You'll need to frankenstein in some sleeves from another pattern and tweak the neck, but I think it could work.
You could also try the Simplicity 5386 A view (Matrix coat) and add in the second seam and change the sleeves, and coat length.
