Any idea of a pattern for a coat like this?

Most of the patterns I've seen have straight up-and-down buttons, whereas this has a lovely V shape. And most double-breasted coats are trench coats, which has a very different style. Thanks!

Vogue 8346 has a similar look but no, doesn't have the curved panels. I haven't seen that anywhere. Maybe you could adapt it.

You could try Burda 7458, and have the second row of buttons as non-functional??

The Folkwear Belgian Military Chef's Jacket has similar (maybe even more exaggerated at the top) curved panels, but it's way shorter and only has a band collar.

About 20 years ago, I had a suit with a jacket very similar to this with the buttons farther apart at the top to make a V. It was wildly flattering. Hope someone comes up with a pattern. Designers...are you listening???

This design has the V-shape double breast. You could modify to add the flared skirt portion:

Lekala 5836

Edit to update pattern link :)

Oooh, ahh, the Lekala is pretty darn close! I think I can probably modify it from there... Maybe? LOL.

Thanks to everyone who thought about this with me!
