Well, the cotehardie is easy - pick up a princess seam dress pattern at the fabric
store that can be made w/o collar, has buttons, long sleeves and floor length.

The sideless surcoat pattern can be acquired; my wife has one that's been copied
onto shopping bags from a long ancestral line.  Don't know how you'd get it, but
if you'd care to contact her at gwen@maxson.com, arrangements could probably be
made for aiding you! (She's Ponte Alto's Silver Key)
