MODULE 1 • First Steps

Step Description
1 And, now we have traced our oaktag (upper body jacket block) into a regular unlined white pattern, as you can see, and that’s how we start drafting the jacket, the single-breasted two-button jacket from the block.
2 Our next step is to establish the jacket length, so from the upper body block, our jacket length for a size 40 jacket is 31.5” (80cm). We get that because we drop 2” (5.1cm) from the crotch level. And so, the total length from the base of the neck, all the way down to the hem of the jacket is 31.5” (80cm). We are going to label this point #1, again for reference.
3 And now, we get our L square into play and we want to square-off from point #1 all the way to our front guideline, beyond the front guideline, to center front all the way.
