Ooohhhh I know where you can get the pattern anyway, which is a big start. There is a great company called Folkwear Patterns.

"Started in California in the 1970s, Folkwear provides sewing patterns that are based on authentic vintage and folk garments from around the world. Our patterns are flexible enough to be used for costuming as well as for making unique every-day-wear."

I collect patterns and have sewn dresses from their patterns. They are great! I would recommend a seamstress near you so it can be fit to you, you will have to try it on during the process. Making a jacket and vest takes a lot of skill and may be a bit spendy but it will also be really special. I hope it comes together well for you!
