Jackets

There are 3 groups of patterns for this segment:

  1. A tracing of the jacket sloper with a lapel added and collar made to match it - please include ALL the original darts.
  2. A set of jacket linings, facings and interfacings for the basic jacket (with lapel and collar) - per instructions given in class
  3. A complete pattern set for a jacket of your own design
    • The design must include:
      • a "notched" collar (not Shawl or mandarin)
      • a lapel
      • a closure
      • sleeves
      • a pocket
    • The pattern must include:
      • All the jacket parts
      • the lining
      • the facings
      • the interfacing

    This may require finding other pattern books, especially when it comes to the pockets. Please plan accordingly.

    Also, do not design anything complicated. This is meant to be a leaning experience, both for patternmaking and for sewing. Survive THIS jacket, then you can go off and conquer the world.

Every pattern must have a completed muslin that adheres to the muslin standards. Use similar weight fabric to intended fashion fabric for the design pattern (last pattern).
