I really don't know if this is in the right spot, so sorry if it's not. I haven't really posted on here.  There is a jacket I want to make that I saw one of the guys of My Chemical Romance wearing.  Here's two pictures of it:

Hope they work. The thing is, I can't find a pattern even close to it and also because the zipper goes off on an angle.  Could someone help figure something out? Haha thanks everyone!

Hmmmm.  All I can think of is to look for a double-breasted military or motorcycle jacket pattern with epaulets and adapt it for the angled zipper?

If not actually disgruntled, he was far from being gruntled.

That's a motocycle jacket, or something like that. Here's a tutorial on how to make it: http://community.livejournal.com/t_shirt_surgery/4120364.html#cutid1

Good luck!

it reminds me of this one http://www.voguepatterns.com/item/V2973.htm?search=jacket&page=11

you can easily manipulate the collar and add zipper pockets, but it has the main structure of a jacket and a side zipper

Wow thanks guys! I'm not sure which I'm going to do. My mom and grandma are going to be helping me on this because I just took a sewing class in school this year for first semester elective. Thanks and I'll definately will post progress, when I actually accomplish anything. Haha. If anyone else has ideas, please post them. I appreciate it all!

punkrockdomestics.com has a great tutorial for this.

I suggest drafting it on muslin or some old t-shirts before actually going into your good fabric.

It's surprisingly simple once you figure out the main shapes. I'm still having trouble with the upper collar size, however. GOOD LUCK!

I'm coming into this a bit late but I have made that Vogue pattern and it is great and the next one I make is going to be heavily modified to be a lot more like Frank's (my whole reason for making it also). There is also a Hot Patterns pattern for a similar jacket http://www.hotpatternsstore.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=HP&Product_Code=vhp_bbj&Category_Code=ja Good luck!
