Hello, I'm a beginner here, but I have my heart set on this rather complicated looking coat that Haytham wears in AC3.
It does not look like any of the buttons on the coat would actually be functional due to the way it attaches. I was thinking I would avoid this by using hook and eye closures and maybe some velcro or something, but my main issue comes in with the neckline. I would like to feminize the coat by giving it more of a v-neckline. However, with the way the two sides of the coat overlap I'm not sure how I could do this.
I've found an asymmetrical jacket pattern that has the depth and shape of neckline I want (just based on what I look good in) here: http://voguepatterns.mccall.com/v830...hp?page_id=285
However the closures would need to be higher up, and the collar more like Haytham's.... I want to stay fairly close to the original character.
And I would want a coat with a body and bottom more like this pattern: http://butterick.mccall.com/b5425-pr...hp?page_id=872
So I'd have to figure out how to combine them I guess?
I've never done anything like this before, so maybe I'm approaching this in the completely wrong way?
Any help would be much appreciated!
