Drafting a Portrait Collar Jacket
In this lesson, you will learn how to draft a double-breasted portrait collar jacket. This type of jacket sits away from the neckline and is considered a very sophisticated silhouette. It is often used in cocktail dresses and for eveningwear jackets and vests.

MODULE 1 • Lesson Prep
|1||To begin this lesson, trace your front jacket torso sloper onto a piece of pattern paper twice the width and 10” (25.4cm) longer than your sloper. Position the front sloper on the paper, as demonstrated.|
|2||Draw a line extending from the bust level onto the blank area of the paper. We will be transferring the bust dart a little bit to the center front, since we will be drafting a double-breasted garment and additional ease is required on the front.|
|3||Cut into the extended bustline to within 1/16” (2mm) of the vanishing point of the side bust dart.|
