Pattern help, please?

Going to sound incredibly weird and I'm probably putting this in the wrong forum...but...

Does anyone have any tips for making a Nazi uniform or a cosplay like this one: http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?...264044&theater

It sounds really weird to ask, but if anyone has a pattern or tips or anything, I'd really appreciate it. It's for a dear friend of mine and I want to give it to her for her birthday. Thanks for any help that you can give me.

The thing in the picture really has no defined era. It's got some pre-1800 influences (definitely not 1860s style shirt, they were more tailored by that point and the whole outfit is just too "fantastic"), and what looks like modern women's wear.

The picture will be easier to make a reality than a uniform. A real dress uniform, no matter from what faction is going to take a good 40 hours of skilled labour to make right. A facsimile can cut corners, but you get what you put in. Also, since a certain uniform has real-life defined parameters, you'll come off looking worse if you only do a so-so job because people know what it's supposed to look like and people do make great replicas. You have more freedom interpreting a drawing of something that never existed.

Look for similar patterns to alter if you are not confident drafting your own.
