I am looking for a pattern of a Chinese jacket, mandarin collar, like those in kungfu movie. I tried searching online, not much luck. I know there's folkware, but it doesn't seems to be what I am looking for. Also, I want to look for more choice.

My last hope is here, thank you....

Goal......

The difference is just the 'diagonal' ? and collar the same?

How accurate do you want it?  The major pattern companies seem to have their own take on the style, like these:  http://butterick.mccall.com/b4688-products-4809.php?page_id=369  or http://www.simplicity.com/p-1948-missmiss-petite-jackets.aspx

Thank you, I think I need to learn how to do better search. How do you search? key words?  I tried Chinese, or mandarin, but got nothing...

I actually just skimmed the jackets and coats patterns on the websites of the big 4 pattern companies.  I'm familiar enough with their catalogues to know when certain styles are being picked up (which I guess is sort of sad, and just indicative of how much time I spend flipping through pattern sites!).  To modify the simplicity pattern, I'd actually draft out the princess seams, since you don't see that type of tailoring in any of the examples you posted.  This link:  http://www.reddawn.net/costume/princess.htm shows you how to do that.  The example is for a bodice pattern, but you could translate the directions over to the coat.  And I don't know how to modify arm scythes, either.  I'd actually just cheat, by making it a size or two larger, subtracting the width from the center back, and tailoring at the side seams, if necessary.  Hope that helps!
