    Is there anyone who can help to make imperial officer costume and especially hats? I need some visual sketches and templates about how to cut the fabric to get the exact shape of officer hat
    thanks in advance...

    There's a tutorial here for the hat. We have made these for customers, and it's not hard to do, just takes patience. We also make the uniforms. If you're good at converting patterns, you can modify a civil war era pattern to look very similar.

    As for the jacket and breeches, you could try to find the patterns for a 1930's limousine chauffeur's outfit - the closest match there is to the Imperial uniform, IMO...

    I wear vintage East German officer pants. I had my wool tunic dyed to match the pants which are the greyish color.
