for the first jacket all you need to do is get a pattern for a normal jacket that has similar sleeves and collar and alter the pattern so that it hits just under the arms.  or you could get a jacket from the thrift store and hack off the bottom and hem it.  i think thats flower on it but i cant really tell. unless you find fabric like that, you can stencil them on. or use an aplique.

as for the seccond one, again just get a pattern that looks similar and alter it if you need to.  they even have patterns for shrugs like that (shrug? bolero? whichever).  but the red all along the edges of the fabric is done by a serger so unless you have one or know someone who does  youll have to skip that.

Here is a link for how to do lettuce edges on a regular machine (only works on knits I think):

I agree with Katie on the first jacket, either make a jacket that is similar but crop it before it hits your bust or pick one up and make it yourself.  Make sure that the jacket has a good fit and isn't big on you.  You won't get the right look otherwise.

The second one reminds me of New Look 6559:



The directions included in the pattern should also give you some tips on lettuce edges with your machine.

ok, i found a really good pattern for both of them today, but they were each like $15, so i am gonna go get them at a different store for like $2 each tomorrow (and some fabric).

i never buy a pattern at full price.  stores always have sales or coupons.  i chuckle in my head at the people who spend $15- $30 on a pattern theyll use once.
