Cutting the pattern
Once you have decided what type of jacket you want to make, and selected the required pieces, you must add seam allowance before cutting the patterns out of the fabric. You will need to add at least 1 cm to all edges, and 2,5-3 cm to the hems of the sleeves. You need to cut two pieces of all pattern pieces unless they are cut on the fold. You can choose to have a collar cut in the same fabric as the jacket or collar and optional wristband cut from rib-knit fabric.
You will need the following pieces: the front, the back (choose only one of the alternatives), the sleeve (either the normal cut from one piece or the curved cut from two pieces), the front, back and hem facings (be careful to select the right ones), the chosen collar and lastly the optional wristband.
Make sure you cut the sleeve at the right length.
