Bride of the Water God/ Tang Style Hanfu

I have been trying to find information and some sort of pattern (or basis to go off of) for the Hanfu that are worn in Bride of the Water God. I am hesitant to just start draping since they are historical and probably have specific structures that I want to at least attempt to mimic. Does anyone have any experience or knowledge about this?

The style is specific to the Tang Dynasty in China.

I have found historical patterns for the jacket, but only for a longer version which goes over the skirt in other styles and not under the skirt. ---> http://www.pinterest.com/pin/486318459733253862/ I am not sure if I can just shorten it or not.

I would think there would be no issue with shortening it as all of the ancient Asian patterns are based on rectangles.
That is really lovely, good luck with it!

I love the look of Hanfu, I've been experimenting with designs inspired by it myself.
Good luck with the costume, and I think you will be fine shortening that jacket pattern.
