Exclamation Hetalia industrial revolution england cosplay

Hello, so I'm having a little problem with starting the coat for my industrial revolutionary England cosplay. I have the white dress shirt and pants done, and i already have some ideas on materials to use that might go well, but my main concern is what pattern to use? Since it looks like the kind of coat that has a zipper n the front rather than buttons. I tend to be a huge perfectionist when it comes to making cosplays, and i want it to look professional as possible so any info/ suggestions are greatly appreciated!! Especially to those who have made the cosplay before! Also for the edges (like on the collar edges, down sides of contrast, ect.) would it be better to do a hong kong finish using bias tape or?? And last what about the sash? (pattern wise) >w<;;; thank you!!! ; w ; ;;;

ok, that guy has a zipper, are you sure the character has a zipper? or is it magically closed like a lot of drawn items? You don't have to build yours the way someone else did, no matter how well they did it.

I've heard of cosplayers using this Butterick pattern, with modifications for England. Or you could use this pattern, again, with modifications to the colors. In fact, that cosplayer may have used the second pattern.

well im mainly sure its suppose to have the zipper? But I was already planning on doing that anyways >w<;;b and I do have to agree with you on that what you say is true, I just use them for reference pics. It helps me plan them out easier <:3
And thank you very much for the pattern link!! ; w ; I'm most likely going to go with the second one! ...Now what to do for the sash? >w>;;

The sash is a slightly curved piece of fabric cut on a diagonal. Here is a picture of another cosplayer's sash pattern. Hopefully this gives you an idea of what it will look like on your body/costume. It's basically two pieces of fabric (probably double layered for thickness) sewn at the should and hip. Use a light to medium weight broadcloth. Hope this helps!
