Purple tailcoat

So it all began when I wanted a Willy Wonka-esque costume but then I realized that I really wanted one of those formal suits. Did some research and came up with the name Morning Dress. But I can't find any in purple. So I did some more research and came across some sites where people wanted to dress as The Joker and were asking for purple tailcoats. So far I didn't find anything and while buying a Joker costume might do the trick, I wanted my costume to look authentic (you know what I mean?). So now I'm checking everywhere for purple or violet tailcoats and so far I haven't found any. Everything else like the top hat, waistcoat, striped trousers, cane and shoes are easy to find. It's that darn tailcoat that eludes me.

Oh well, after all of my searching it would seem that I will have to get this custom made. Maybe after I'm seen sporting one businesses will start making them in purple (lol, just a joke).
look for a McCalls pattern at Walmart or any place that sells sewing patterns.
