I don't know if you've already answered this question, but where did you get the pattern?

I've been wanting/longing to make a costume like that myself, but I can't find a suitable pattern anywhere :(

I actually made that one myself. Like you, I dislike most patterns on the market now. I decided to make a coat which demonstrated a change in style from the 1770s frock to the 1790s tail coat. While this one is more frock than tail coat, it still represents than transitional period in fashion, what with the slightly more pronounced cutaway front and the acceptance of lapels. The best pattern you could get is the one from wmboothdraper.com (I've spent thousands of dollars through them for fabric) and then make a muslin pattern based off of theirs. If you have a mannequin of yourself, toss the muslin on and start cutting and adding. It's all about creativity... and lots of pins... o_O

Do you? Do you know the huge old stone church? That's where all the English Country dances take place throughout the year. On New Year's they have a nice ball.
