7th March 2018: I hate trying to adapt patterns So I have started on my coat for Emily. I was going to use the coat pattern I always use, but on closer inspection of her costume it wasn't going to work. so instead I opted for McCALL'S M7058 because unlike the simplicity pattern, this had side pannels. I spent a while thinking about which fabric to use and ended up going with one that was quite a bit lighter than what it looks in the game because I thought it would look better when getting photos in dim lit areas.
After cutting out the pieces I had to still change the front pannels so they were short and curved in, and then change the back pannels so they had the slant. This was the part I was most nervous of because there is no going ack oce cut.
I think I have done an ok job. At the moment it is just pinned so i can use the pieces as a template to cut out the lining. I tried ot on, but I no longer have a mirror I can look in to check how it looks and the mannequin is about 3 sizes smaller than me so I can't get a proper judgement off of it.

But its too late now anyway. The fabric has been cut. I have no more spare so I'm just hoping when I get it lined and sewn up I am happy with it.

Sorry for the bad image quality. I'm using my Vita camera.
