Cagalli GSD uniform coat.

Any tips on making the coat? in particular the collar? and the colour blocking?

If you don't already have a coat, dress jacket, or sports jacket handy. Then I would head down to the local Thrift-Store and pick one up that is similar in design to what you're looking for. Afterward, I would head down to a crafts store and get a good sized roll or sheet of thick cotton/polyester. As soon as you have done that, simply copy the coat's design (i.e. taking the coat apart layer by layer, part by part) and transferring the design(s) onto the sheet of cotton material. With that, make any necessary adjustments/editing on that design to resemble the coat that 'Kira & Cagalli' wear. You're definitely going to have to make the collar entirely on your own, but all it is, is a bigger sized version of a regular collar. Steal the designs from already made coats and manipulate them to your desire(s)/need(s). It's pretty much that simple. As far as making the 'color blocking', that is also relatively simple. Cut where the colors differentiate on your coat design (white coat) and then transfer that cut piece onto let's say a blue piece of cotton material; trace it, cut it, and then attach it to your coat. It's going to take a certain amount of practice to stitch/sow, unless you already know how to. Practice sowing pieces together and see what needs to be edited and/or worked on, etc. If and when you have your drafted coat ready, wear it and have a friend size it for you like what people go through when getting a suit and edit where you need to
