Yow, I've been looking at a jacket just like that, that Delias sells:

I hadn't thought to look for a pattern yet.  When I get around to it, I'll most likely use a plain zip up fleece jacket I have as the base pattern add that great collar.  The collar is just a stand-up rectangular piece like a pants waistband, shouldn't be too extra.

What is the pattern for your fleece jacket?

Thanks guys! I hope I'll be able to find something similar and wing it without too many tears!

I usually just use clothes I have as a pattern guide.  But looking around, I found some interesting stuff:

http://www.sewing.net/patterns/pattern.html
"Click & Sew" jacket pattern ($20)

http://www.fabricsandbuttons.com/patterns/StretchNSew/salmon_river_coat.html
princess seamed fleece jacket ($8)

The latter would be great-- the collar is even there, you'd just have to make it longer, so it could lap with a snap closure, and I'd make the zipper not go all the way up.

hope this helps!

Here's another one:

typical fleece jacket.  Just ignore that drawstring bottom.  Hopefully you can find a corduroy with some stretch-- that lighter, fine wale stuff I've used recently is fab.
