Just a couple of hints from a girl who sews - beware the nap on velvet!!! be really careful when you iron it - dont steam. Trust me, the results aint pretty... you get shiny marks and dark spots... Good luck! the design looks great!

I used that Matrix pattern to make myself a coat. I need to re-sew it though. The buttons came off.
The Matrix one works really well for larger body types...it's very flatering. And if you have it long enough to reach your ankles....it's looks kind of like your gliding when you walk!

That is a great idea for a coat.  I have wanted to make one like that too for some time.  I tend to lean towards the goth side myself.  And size 22 as well.

Looking at the picture of your inspiration... it reminds me of the dress I made when I was attempting to create a gown from the 14th century.  The coat almost looks like a dress...

If you had someone to help you with fitting, you could probably create a pattern that would replicate the lines of the coat... but, that would probably be a huge pain.  I know when I attempting my dress it was.... Now I want to try it... I can somewhat envision a plan in my head...

If you are interested, I can attempt to explain how I think you could create a pattern to get that look...  just let me know.

Good luck. Cheesy
