Egghead tailcoat pattern?

Post by wayoutjunk »

I'm looking at the possibility of dressing up as Egghead for Halloween this year. Is there anyplace I could get a pattern for the particular style of tailcoat that he wears?

I would be inclined to check out some costume hire places (sometimes they sell excess costumes), and second hand clothes stores. A tailor could also adapt an existing coat/pattern.

Professional theater companies sometimes have costumes available for rent as well. Sizes can be limited to whatever was made for cast member(s), but they're often designed with re-use in mind, and so crafted in ways that allow for size adjustments. Sometimes there are lots of variants (e.g. military uniforms, e.g.) A company that stages big musicals might have a batch of tailcoats.

Let me explain the situation I'm in. I've been cast as the Mayor of Whoville in a local production of Seussical the Musical. The director wanted to use white and yellow in my costume, and on a whim I suggested a version of Egghead's outfit. Turns out the director is cool with that, and the assistant director knows a seamstress who wants to give it a try. I've given her pictures, and I've told her she can borrow my Egghead figure for reference, but I was hoping to find a pattern for a cutaway coat to help her out. I'm going to check the patterns at some of the local fabric stores, but I was curious to know if somebody knew of one either online or that I could buy. Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance! :-)
