Matching a sweater (Silent Hill)

Hi all! I'm working on a Heather costume from Silent Hill Revelations 3D (although not for me)

I've succeeded in finding many of the original items used in the film, but this sweater/hoodie has me stumped. I'd call it a hoodie or sweatshirt, except it has no waistband and the fabric has a odd, knitted texture. I've attached a gallery of pictures. Perhaps some kind soul has seen this sweater or one like it? its a deep orange or faded red with metallic glitter. Aside from the texture the only unusual thing about the sweater is that the sleeves are extra long, with thumbholes.

Thanks!

it's a textured jersey. You may be able to find that texture in white and then dye it. The advantage is it's probably 100 or 98% cotton.
The extra long sleeves & thumb holes are just that, cut 'em 4" longer & leave a gap in the seam.
