It's just not punny. Geddit? Puns? Punny? Funny?

Anyway, jokes aside, this is actually quite an important post. Because I've decided, emphatically... that I'm going to make the coat from scratch. It'll be a challenge, definitely. But I'm more likely to get it done in time. If you think about it - I can simply find a pattern and modify it, and make it from scratch - which will take around 1-3 weeks, which will allow me to make it exactly how I want it, with the right fabric, colour, size, and so forth.. On the other hand, I could spend ages looking for a coat roughly the colour and shape, and alter it so it looks a bit like it, but not 100%, with i probably having the pockets too near the edge and a breast pocket. That is, if I even find a coat I can use.
Therefore, the best option definitely seems to be making it from scratch, wither with a bought pattern, or one I've created myself.
So, here's the coat I'm planning to make. You should know what it looks like by now, but I'll remind you anyway:
If you can find any patterns that look like this, or at least are similar and could be altered, please link them either in the Weebly comments below or the Disqus comments to the side (The latter would be preferable). Anyone who helps, and has helped so far will get their name written or inscribed somewhere on the costume, as well as my eternal gratitude. So, please have a look, see if you can spot any patterns that I haven't. Many thanks! :D
