I’m hoping to cosplay Luna Lovegood in a Con at the end of October. I’m planning to buy majority of it but the one thing I can’t find is a pink tweed jacket? I’m doing the outfit from Half Blood Prince and I don’t know how I would sew her jacket and I can’t seem to find one anywhere! If you know links that would he great please! :)

If you want to avoid sewing you could consider getting it commissioned, which is getting another person (usually another cosplayer) to make the garment for you. Some of the pros: you can get something very accurate and that fits you properly. Some of the cons: the price would be higher than buying a jacket at the store and it may take some time to get to you. 

If you want to try making it yourself, I suggest starting with a sewing pattern. It will give you step-by-step instructions to cut the fabric out  and sew it together to make a coat. This patterm (McCalls M7442) would give you a similar shape, with a ruffled bottom rather than pleats. This pattern (McCalls M7513) will give you pleats but a bit of a different collar. Burda’s B5235 and B6461 are also similar, without the ruffled/pleated bottom. 

Goodluck!
