I think Nancysnotions.com has a pattern for one.  I do think it is one
of the independent designers that designed it.  Not Nancy.

Re: pattern question
I have it, and the book with several different jackets, using the pattern
from Indygo Junction, but I've forgotten the designer's name.

Re: pattern question
Butterick 4928 is an almost replica of the "topper" as they were called in
the 1940, that DM made for me when I was a teen.  I loved that coat, it was
a cranberry wool, lined with a silk of black & cranberry design.  I just
bought this pattern to make myself another as much like that one as
possible.  Over the years, I have developed an allergy to wool, so it will
be made of gabardine, lined with cotton.  Oh well, a person can't have
everything.

Thanks to everyone! i think i'm going to go with the Butterick 4928, i
can adjust the collar to be smaller, and use a frog closure at the
neck. i have some boucle' in chocolate colors i think will be pretty.
I also have some white wool. A big button at the top maybe?
