I'm looking to buy a type of "british-colonial" type jacket, such as pictures below, not leather or anything but something put together nicely. I'm having a hard time finding anything online that's not asking a hundred dollars and up. I'd like it to be either a beige or blue color, or dark red.



If anyone knows anything that could help me out, let me know!:jol:

If you can sew a bathrobe pattern works perfect for that type of coat.
All you need to do is add the lapels, collar and cuffs.

Thats what I used for my Captains coat and it turned out really nice.

If you or anybody you know sews, look for historical patterns. Any antique garment that is authentic will be valuable.

I used a red bathrobe from a thrift store for our son's Redcoat costume when he was 11. It was super easy. I used white felt for the details and cross belts.

This place has full costumes for around $50

These pieces are not of high quality. so if you're looking for long term usage, more than a couple of nights of wear for a haunt, think twice.
Good pieces will run from $80 on up.

I found a red jacket on ebay just now. I can't comment on the quality though.
