Ed's jacket.  
Hey everyone! I've posted here once or twice before, although I'm mostly a lurker, but I really love this community. And since I've been having some trouble finding this, I was wondering if anyone on here could help me. My conundrum is thus: I really want Ed's jacket -- not for cosplay, but just to wear around and weird people out (my ultimate goal XD). I looked on Ebay (naturally my first reaction; a living, breathing Ebay success story over here) first, but either I was putting in the wrong keywords or they just didn't have it, since I couldn't find ANYTHING on there. My next idea was to make one, but unfortunately, I can't sew without directions of some sort. So, I was wondering -- does anyone know of a site with directions for sewing up Ed's red jacket on it? Or, just in case I'm being a total dunce, does anyone know where I can buy the jacket, on Ebay or otherwise?

Sorry if I'm being annoying, but I'm desperate! I'm grateful for any help <3

A nice, editable pattern-of-sorts was posted a looong time ago, and I saved the link.

Hope this helps :3

Thanks so much! This should help a lot.

You might try looking around on cosplay.com -- I think they have a classified section. Or most cosplayers will share how they made theirs -- find an Ed cosplayer, and email him/her. Or, given that this is an FMA community, wait for one to turn up here.

Thanks for the advice and the link!

Well, I'm getting my coat in the mail in a few days. If you don't mind waiting I can tell you how good it was made and whether I recommend it. I'm getting it from Chokingyo, who I came in contact with from ebay a few weeks ago. She makes and sells Ed coats--Costum made to fit. But, it was 145 dollars--that's plus shipping which was ten dollars, so I'm not sure if you want to spend that much.

It might be cheaper though, since I ordered his black inner long sleeve thing that he wears under the coat and not just the coat. I can ask for the price of JUST the coat if you want me to. ^^

*dies* $145? I'm so cheap...I was hoping to find one for $50-$60. Please don't trouble yourself on my account, but I appreciate the price range ^^ Now it looks like I'll DEFINITELY have to make it.

I wonder if they'd be willing to part with just the jacket? XD

Still, that's an awesome price for all that stuff. Rock on!

There you go. Pattern, material suggestions, picture refrences, the whole shebang. I posted it a long time ago, I should e-mail the admins to archive it. Hope it helps. :)

Glad to know it ain't just me >____< I made Ed's coat for my new winter coat heehee. I got a Burda pattern and made it out of this awesome red velvet I got on clearence and I just need to line the inside now.....I need to find more of th evelvet though.... ::puts on coat and chills:: Its super comfy and gets lots of fun comments ^___^

Wow, so cool, I'd like one that could be used for a winter coat. :O About how much time went into it? Do you do commissions? XD
RayeRayepiyocola on February 22nd, 2005 10:37 pm (UTC)
It took about one day of sewing....I already had the pieces cut out and its a fairly easy pattern....The lining is gonna be a pain...I just lined a fitted suit jacket today x.x much hate...

Actually I'm thinking about starting to do commisions now that I can sew for real >____< This Fashion major may be useful after all ^___^***
Ellyellyrianna on February 23rd, 2005 04:01 am (UTC)
Mmm, commissons, tasty. If you didn't want a winter jacket -- no lining and whatnot -- would it take less time/work?

Ok, I have yet to translate the sewing instructions (anyone care to help ^_^?), but this has all you need for sewing the actual coat http://www.bakachan.com/cosplay/coshelp/patterns/edcoat.htm

What I need is a pattern for making Ed's Automail leg (The site has the arm). Just thought I would post that to see if it helps ^_^
Ellyellyrianna on February 23rd, 2005 04:01 am (UTC)
Cool ^^

are you reading my mind?
Dude this is absolutely scary. I was thinking about how I wanted to do that today. I want to wear Ed's jacket without cosplaying as well. You have been listening in on my daydreams havent you?!
