Romano Jacket pattern?

Hi! I'm planning on cosplaying as Romano )
(S. Italy) from Hetalia: Axis Powers but I don't want to buy the cosplay and spend $90... I was going to style my own wig and sew the jacket, and buy khakis. The only problem: I need a pattern for the jacket. I didn't want to buy a pattern because I'm poor. XD Also because I'm trying to save money, not buy a pattern im never going to use again. So, if anybody knows where I can get a free pattern to sew this jacket and something that's fairly simple, please let me know~ Thanks so much~! btw I've attached a link of a picture of him with the jacket.

nah, you can find that. I'd cruise the mens shirt section in thrift stores, finding one with close enough pockets that you can just take in on the sides & even up the hem should be easy. Find two and just steal the pockets off the second to put on the first.

I think you'd be better off making it yourself or looking for a cheap pattern. Look for a "safari jacket". It's way easier to get "free" if it's free because you did it yourself - but places like Jo-Ann's often have sales where all patterns are $1, which shouldn't be too much to spend.

You might be able to find one to just buy, too.

I don't mean to advertise, but watch JoAnn for their dollar sales. some times they'll put patterns on sale for $1, $1.99, or 5 for $5 (but you don't have to buy all 5). They'll usually come around holidays but keep an eye on their ads and check in the store (they some times don't advertise them).

Thanks everybody! I found a shirt at goodwill that will help. I posted another thread about working on the shirt, and if you could please tame a look, it would be great! Its just general questions about the display and I desperately need advice...
