Drafting a Women’s Jacket
Using your oaktag torso sloper, we will teach how to draft a women’s princess seam jacket. You will learn where to add the necessary jacket ease, how to shape the pattern, how to extract the princess panels and then how to draft a notch collar, lapel and facing. To draft your suit sleeve, either view our lesson on how to draft a suit sleeve from measurements or our lessons on converting a fitted sleeve to a suit sleeve and how to convert a suit sleeve to a two-piece suit sleeve. Our Jacket Construction Techniques lesson will guide you through the finer points of sewing a tailored jacket.
