I found everything except the coat. Tried Ebay, Etsy, and thrift stores for something passable. Nada. The sewing machine is down, so I can't get anything that needs a lot of alterations. Also not sure if I have enough for a custom coat.

Actually, I did find a listing recently for a 10 coat on Etsy. [url][/url]

$200 is a lot more than I could afford. He would only wear it a handful of times. Believe me, I would kill for it, but after the suit (just a brown pinstripe suit) and the converse sneakers that is out of our price range.

You probably won't find anything cheaper than the repairs for the sewing machine plus fabric. You could probably even find a second hand sewing machine if you had to for $20-50 if you had to.

It's a bit of an unusual item to find for a child, so barring some kind of pre-made costume I think anything out there is going to be quite expensive - either fancy RTW or custom (for which $200 is pretty average - you might be able to get someone to make a simpler sort of similar coat for less, but it depends on when you need it by).

It doesn't have to be perfect. I've been looking for a trench coat, juniors or adult, hoping for something close.

You say "juniors or adult" - what size are you looking for ? Neither my brother or I were very big when we were 10 so I was thinking more along the lines of a "kid" size - which would be much harder to find than an adult or small-adult/junior size.

It is impossible to find a long coat for his size, so I've expanded to coats that would only come to around knee length on an adult but would be long enough on him. Heck, there are even a couple of cheap dresses that might work.

Just saw this doing a quick ebay search for xs women's coats: [url][/url]


I searched 'xs women's tan coat'. Try the search, you might find something that could fit. Most listings include measurements.

Thank you all for your help. I'm sorry for being a PITA.
