Some help with Pokemon Red's coat

The Red i'm talking about is not the new one for Gen III , but the old school Gen I and II
http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/__...C3%A9monRB.png

the biggest challenge, his coat. I don' want to resort to my ill-fated attempt of using spray fabric paint so decided to make the coat out of scratch. Thing is, the only expirience i have is sewing patches on clothings
So making a coat/shirt out of scratch is gonna be a real challenge for me, any tips/pointers before I send my finger's into a fiery hell

Well, when i had trouble back then on making jackets. What I did is I bought tape and tape one side of a jacket i had. Basically, your going to use the tape to make a sort of pattern from a pre-existing jacket. Once you had it, just cut it and then place it onto your fabric. You might want to adjust it or make sure the measurements are ok.

A pattern similar to this might be a good starter:

You can probably ignore the button holes, alter the collar's shape a little, and add pockets to the front of it. For the white line at the bottom, you can line the edge with bias tape.

I think getting the pattern you want to use is a good start. It should give you fabric recommendations and how much of it you'll need. Then follow the steps on it :3

@PuyoDa. Either its my computer, or it's just the site itself, but i can neither see the recommended fabric lengths nor the steps to do it

Aah, it's because that's not a free pattern site ^^;; You'd have to buy that pattern or find a free pattern site with a similar pattern. The site has a PDF link to the fabric requirements and suggestions, but if you want the actual pattern, you'd have to buy it.

You could try going to a fabric store and seeing if they have a similar pattern (or that exact one). The people at the fabric store could probably help you buy the fabrics needed as well.

This can actually be done without sewing anything [and it doesn't look that bad either].
What I did was wear a white dress coat type shirt [one with a wide collar!] and then wore a black shirt over that. The white sleeves stick out. Then, just put a Red vest over that.
If the white shirt has long sleeves like mine, just cut them back or use safety pins.
