When I've made my cosplays I go to JoAnn and check out the pattern books. You should be able to find a pattern close to what you want to make, and just modify it to suit your needs. For me I would find a hooded jacket pattern similar to that one, and do it in all white. The black pattern bits you could either paint them on, or just cut out some black material and sew them on top of the white material.

I would definitely agree with finding a pattern close to that and then modifying what you need to. Three big pattern manufacturers are Simplicity, McCall's, and Butterick. There's also Vogue and Burda, but their patterns tend to be more complicated. If you go to their websites, you can actually brows their patterns online, and sort by the type of thing you're looking for (jackets, dresses, etc.). Here are some links:

 

Simplicity Patterns

McCall's Patterns

Butterick Patterns

Kwik Sew Patterns

 

I would browse around until you find something that looks close, and then make a note of the brand and pattern number. Another thing is, if you don't need this in a rush, you should look at your local fabric store ads to see when patterns go on sale. Simplicity, McCall's and Butterick often get marked down to 99¢ at the fabric stores near me, so I don't usually buy them when they're not on sale.

The people working at the fabric stores will also help and give you advice on how to do things if you aren't sure. If you don't wish to sew the whole thing, there is another alternative. If you have a Good Will or a Salvation Army store in your area (or any clothing resale store) you can always look in there for jackets/coats that would work for you. Then all you'd need is to sew the black on.

First off i would say show i picture of what you want to make to someone at a fabric store since thats a pretty straightforward jacket pattern. My other question is: Have you used a sewing machine before or maybe not for a while? I'd suggest using some old t-shirts or some other old fabrics to practice on if you haven't sewn in a while (or at all). I'm not trying to imply anything negative by this, just trying to offer a suggestion to practice before putting this together.
