I'm looking to cosplay as Alice wearing the Late but Lucky Dress from Alice: Madness Returns and I wanted to get some ideas as  to how to make the red jacket in this picture.


I'm good on everything else except for the jacket. I've found several vintage patterns online but I was hoping to get a new Butterick, Simplicity, or McCalls pattern, which go on sale often at my local Joann's. I'm looking for the length of the jacket (cropped) and the collar. One of the patterns I've been looking at is the Butterick B4610 (http://butterick.mccall.com/b4610-products-6236.php?page_id=369) which has a similar collar but the only thing I'm worried about is the length and the fact that it has darts that could affect the shaping.

Also: ideas on where to get the hat or how to make a good one would be great!

Any help is much appreciated!

Have you considered this New Look pattern?

The bottom is curved on the front, but it will be easier to change that than to adjust the length on the pattern you linked to. Otherwise, it has the correct collar and it's cropped. I think it's probably your best shot.

Good luck!

Thanks! That jacket is perfect and it would be really easy to change the front! Best thing about it though: it's cheap!

No problem! I love New Look patterns! Good luck!

Here are the instructions for a cheap top hat made from cardboard that looks way better than some plastic thing from the costume store!

I would use Youtube link.]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zKcbk6xnSz4&feature=plcp]Youtube link. Which I used to make my own mad hatter hat and it worked splendidly.
