Description of the conten of the sewing instructions
This is the sewing instructions to the suit style jacket for men. It is relatively easy to sew. In general, it is longer in back and shorter in front. It has a zip up front.
The pattern includes facing and can be lined or left unlined.
You have some alternative designs to choose from among the pattern pieces. The jacket can be sewn with either a straight back piece or a piece with a slightly curved shape.
There are also two different sleeves to choose from: a normal straight sleeve and a curved sleeve, both with optional rib knitted wristband.
The curved sleeve is made from two separate pieces while the normal sleeve is made from one.
The collar is available in two alternative designs, one with a straight overall width and another with a collar wider at the back. This creates a higher back to the collar and is primarily thought for a jacket with a curved back (following the curved line).
The collar piece with high back should be made in rib knit fabric.
A collar in non-stretch jacket fabric does not allow the stretch for this solution.
In the pattern pieces you also have a piece for wristband. This is if you opt for a jacket with wristbands in rib knit fabric. If you want a regular hem for the sleeves you will choose this when cutting the sleeve pattern.
Finally the pattern includes pieces for lining along the hem of the jacket. There is two back pieces of this to choose from. One fits a straight back and the other a jacket with a curved back.
