Pattern for Asami

So my friends and I are doing a Legend of Korra panel, and I got voted to be Asami. XD

What I'm not sure about is the jacket... what patterns would you suggest?

P.S. I'm still so-so on reading actual patterns (I can draft my own, but can't read regular ones, I don't get it either XD), so I would prefer one that's not too complicated. But I can get in touch with my grandma if need be, so ultimately any pattern will do.

Here is a link to what I'm referring to: http://ohsonerdy.com/wp-content/uplo...2/07/asami.jpg

And I'm not sure if my friends would rather have her second outfit, in which case I'd like pattern help with the jacket here, too: http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m6...98x0o1_500.png

Thanks!

The first one will be easier to find a pattern for, I'd start with Simplicity. Yes, jackets are complicated, it is just the nature of being a jacket.

I know learning to read patterns can be daunting, but if you take the time to do so, you will be a much improved seamstress. It's worth learning.

Oh yes, I've sewn a jacket before, I made my Hinata jacket, but I didn't use a pattern for that.

Also I'm not unfamiliar with patterns, I've used them before with a lot of help from my grandmother. She taught me a lot, but since this is for a somewhat important cosplay, I don't think it's a good idea to try to tackle a complicated one if possible. Especially since I had to move away, so it would be difficult to get help from her at this point.

Sorry that I wasn't clear on that. What I would like is a couple of examples of specific patterns that I could look into since there are many many more experienced seamstresses here than me. XD But I'll browse out Simplicity's patterns, too!

Thanks for the tips!

I think that with some minor alterations, this pattern could be a good starting off point for her jacket:
