I must admit to having got a little interested in the Sardinian-Piedmont army - and in particular the capote which they wore in the Crimea. This Italian site which is very good talks about Descrizione del cappotto di Fanteria, modello 1854, confezionato con panno dell'altezza metri 1,300, sulla base della seconda taglia. But no image or pattern - well you can't have everything - but is this image from Battlefield anomlies depicting one? Probably a tunic - which they didn't take to the Crimea according to McClellan.
