I was sitting here waiting for my casserole and corn to cook for our Christmas dinner looking at the news when I came across this gorgeous cape/coat Princess Bea wore to the Christmas service at Sandringham. Does anyone know of a similar pattern? I think I have to make this. It is stunning!! I love the way it is fitted at the waist. I could almost swear I have seen one in a Burda Magazine, but I may be dreaming.
Here are a few pics but I can't seem to find a full length of the front. Thanks.

Princess Bea is on the right

I found it Here is a pic . I am wondering if M6558 would be a good place to start. If anyone has any ideas about any better patterns or what I could franken pattern together I would be so appreciative. I will keep looking. Thanks.

I think I found something that will work to replicate it here I will just have to flare the skirt out a little more. I found it cheaper somewhere else though.

I agree it is lovely. Its not possible to tell from the photos if there is any sleeve under the cape. So, the elements are a fitted top with or without a sleeve, a fully flared skirt, and a cape with classic shoulder shaping but gathers in at the neck edge. A classic cape pattern slashed and spread and cut off at waist level would sort the cape part. The close up photos of the D&G coat show what looks like an unlined cape
part - I'm going on the finish at the hem level here. What does everyone else think about this? Have I got it right? If so, I'm guessing a quite thick coating.

I agree with your assessment Petro. There must be a fit and flare coat pattern, or even a jacket with a nipped waist that could be lengthened. I'd look at vintage and costume patterns too. I'm guessing no sleeves, just the cape. I'd also do muslins to play with how much fullness at the neck gathers for a coating cloth. And also how to make it transition well into the hem drape. It's such a graceful and well proportioned thing. It would take me a good deal of patience to achieve it. Let us know how you fare.

I made this last year. You could just change the neckline, length of cape, and pinch in the waist and add the bottom flare.

I do not think that it is very thick fabric as it is discribed as stretch coating and I have never seen thick stretch fabric.
I have a vintage housecoat pattern that has all of the basic fittings for the coat and then all that would be needed is the cape that I feel you have organized /described well.
The only thing that I saw in Burda was a few dresses in the Plus sizes thaat have some gathers at the neck.

It's a stretch crepe...quite thin. You could make a much better version
