Hello, I'm new to making costumes and ACParadise so I was wondering if anyone would be nice enough to help me with a costume I'm planning on making.

Anime: Hetalia
Character Name: Prussia/Gilbert Weillschmidt
Version of Costume: War of the Austrian Succession/Seven Years War Prussia

Pattern I bought: http://butterick.mccall.com/b3072-produ ... age_id=385
Fabric I bought: Navy Cotton Twill (3 yards), a red-ish fabric 97% cotton 3% spandex (1/2 yard) just for the collar and cuffs

I'd like to try and make it at least close to historically accurate, like what Frederick the Great of Prussia wore.

My questions:
Is the coat two different colors? Blue on the outside and red on the inside? Or is just blue fine with red for the collar and cuffs?
I know the coat color is really Prussian blue, but is navy ok? I've heard the fabric for the coat is wool, but I got cotten because it's breathable and twill because I heard it's supposed to be a good sturdy fabric for uniforms.

I was thinking about getting these boots:

and then adding black spats:

Also, is the hat 3 points or none? I've seen both, and I do have a 3 pointed one.

I have a white dress shirt and tan pants, should I just wear those or make my own?


Sorry for the long post. Just anything anyone can give me to help would be nice. This will be the first costume I hope to make and I'd like to do it right.
