Unhappy RWBY Blake Belladonna - HELP!

So, there's a thing called RWBY. I want to cosplay Blake, but it would seem that her top is juuuust out of my reach (character reference here!).

Having to buy a tailcoat-thing like that would be the easiest route, but her being a fictional character and all, that seems near impossible, and I haven't found any good tutorials for it (the show is relatively new).

Does anyone know/have/how to make a pattern for it? A reasonably priced ebay listing for a very similar one wouldn't hurt, either.

Thank you for your time reading this! Take care!

I think it's more of a corset/vest kind of deal. A vest is easier to make but you'll have to be pretty creative about the white top part.

I made a guide on Blake: blog.tunethesky.com/2013/07/rwby-blake-belldonna-black-cosplay-guide.html

Though it isn't elaborated, I provided how I made the pattern. If you want I can try to explain further how I made mine.

How did you come up with the size for the pattern based off of your measurements?
