Model military uniform

hello
I want to do a cosplay of a military uniform of a character in hetalia. (Russia)
Here are some pictures of the costume:

SPOILER: (highlight to read)





I could use the pattern to sew the costume but can not find it
Or also just something that looks like.
Thanks.

Hi, I am making the same and the pattern I've found is called the "1910's Military Trench Coat" by Reconstructing History. Search for it on Amazon and you'll find it. It'll only require a few tiny alterations. Its not cheap, but if you're making this cosplay, I'm guessing you're expecting to spend money. I know how hard it is to find the right pattern (took me a couple of months to find this) so I hope this'll work for you (and me :3). I suggest using a heavier fabric than the one used in the picture, though, even though it'll add on a bit of cost. I can't tell for sure, but it looks like a plain cotton that is thin and crinkly which looks costume-y on the wrong things. I'm not an expert, so I can't recommend a fabric for sure, but I personally am planning to use a much heavier cotton-polyester or cotton-nylon blend. Don't forget to line it if you want it to be high quality (which means you can wear it outside of cosplaying, bonus!). I hope this helps, and good luck with the costume.

I had some trouble finding the pattern on the site, so here is a link to it:
