 For winter, I would like to make a coat like this:

http://store.delias.com/item.do?categoryID=1386&itemID=46334&sizeFilter=&colorFilter=&brandFilter=

 I have had the fabric for it for almost a year, but I can't find a pattern for any coat even similiar to this! I was thinking about making my own pattern, but I would have no idea how to line it or anything, so a pattern would probably be better.

 Anybody seen any patterns like this, or similiar? I would like the coat to have a collar instead of a hood, though. There is also a hidden zipper behind the toggle flap.

 Thank you for any help!

I think with some toggle buttons and a little combining/of the pattern views, a change of pocket and you could get pretty close with this pattern.

Is it lined? It doesn't say.

Thanks! The only thing is it looks really loose and it doesn't have a collar..

You can always make a smaller size once you've decided the fit you want.  However, you can't always go by the pics...believe me.  They put large sizes on small people all the time.  You can always add a lining (this one is unlined).  In this case it would be just a duplication of the coat.  If you choose to add the welt pocket that is shown you'd want a lining anyway.  The blue coat that is shown has a regular collar.
