I'm going to an event which includes a somewhat formal occasion. The year is 1927 but all attendees have gotten some creative freedom to go anywhere between roughly 1920 and 1935 and to not take the dresscode too strict since it's a one occasion costume. My character is a nurse and there's not a single chance she'd appear in a flapper dress.
Besides that, it's gonna be mid-December and the event is taking place outside for most of it so I need some kind of vest/cover/jacket to got with the dress.

Until now I found these patterns, I'm curious what you guys think and which one would be best

This is the most decent 1930's pattern, I think the design is ok and might look allright on me. I will wear flat boots with this gown though, I can't wear heels for an entire weekend.

This is a more modern dress but I quite like it. I can wear a longsleeve under it and leggings. The main thing with this one would be finding a descent coat to go with it.

A less fitting but I believe gorgeous dress: It will have to be a bit shorter though and again I need a wrap to go with it.

What do you think? any suggestion how to weatherproof these dresses. Or maybe some other suggestions for useful patterns?

something like this http://www.revampvintage.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=reVamp&Product_Code=X811241&Category_Code=W20s could be cute. It's seems fairely boxy so maybe you could alter this pattern http://voguepatterns.mccall.com/v8678-products-11358.php?page_id=865 to get the look.

A feature of 1930s coats is the enormous fur collar, which can be made from a nice faux fur.

Making a giant fur collar which can be temporarily sewn onto a modern long coat could be an inexpensive and quick solution.
