Suggestions on how to create a replica jacket


Well-Known Member
I have been wanting to recreate Freddie Mercury's yellow jacket that you see him wear on the A Kind of Magic tour for years. After buying the basic jacket and pants It got me thinking I could make my own. With the money from the costume going to the Mercury Phoenix Trust, the AIDS charity set up in Freddie's name in 1992. I have figured out the pants, shoes, and shirt. That just leaves his jacket. Also have not found anybody who make the jacket as well.

Suggestions on how to tackle that? I already have ref photos and video. Should I find a pattern that is already done and change it? If so, what one is a good starting point?
