Where can I find a pattern for tuxedo jackets with tails?

it doesn’t have to be a specific color…..please i need to find one…it can be a male or female pattern

Gotta nitpick here: If it has tails, it’s not a tuxedo. Tailcoats are decades older than tuxedos, though both date back to the 1800s.

Review for those who don’t know: The tailcoat is today worn as part of the “white tie” dress code, the only form of evening dress more formal than “black tie,” which is of course the tuxedo. The other parts of white tie are the matching trousers, a stiff-fronted shirt with a stiff, detachable wing collar, a cotton pique vest and bow tie, patent leather oxford shoes, studs and cufflinks (gold and mother of pearl is the standard), and, optionally, a silk top hat.

Anyway, here’s a pattern:

I have to warn you against anything ambitious: a quality tailcoat is pretty much the high point of men’s tailoring.
