Dracula Van Helsing Costume
I made this outfit for my middle son back in 2008. I wrote some of it up but not a detailed link.
I don't remember the coat pattern or the shirt pattern but I'm sure they are no longer available so I will put up some alternatives.
A pattern like Simplicity 4762 would be great for the vest. Instead of buttons just replace it with frog closures like the movie.
A great site to learn to make your own is here
You could use any shirt pattern and don't make a full collar. I used satin fabric but any black fabric would do.
I also made the coat. I don't remember what pattern I used. I bought my fabric at a discount store including the fleece lining inside. My son used it after for winter since it was warm. The frog closures I made myself and they were time consuming but it came out close enough.
Here is my son in his costume. I bought the boots and pants at Goodwill.
