This is a digital draft-at-home pattern for a sophisticated gentleman's suit coat and trousers. The suit jacket is double breasted.

Fabric: this pattern requires approximately 5 meters (about 5 1/2 yards).

The original source material gave limited fabric requirements estimated for a 98 cm (38.5") bust size. More or less may be required depending on the size you choose to draft.

5 1/2" - 60" Bust:
This is a pattern from a French pattern drafting system similar to the Lutterloh golden rule patterns. You will be able to draft a pattern to your exact size from the miniature pattern template and specially designed rulers. To draft any of these special patterns to doll, children, and adult sizes is easy. Rulers are included to draft the pattern as small as a 5 1/2" chest to as large as a 60" chest and the pattern will be scaled perfectly every time.

Don't have a printer? Not a problem! We offer a printing service for these patterns here:
Please note that you will still need to draft your pattern using the printed materials. We are unable to offer a drafting service at this time.

The pattern includes basic markings that show you how they fit together, and includes indications such as dotted lines for cutting on the fold. I have included several pages of drafting instructions that I have translated from the original French personally. The illustrated instructions show you how to easily draw your pattern pieces from the miniature pattern template using our special rulers.

These patterns were marketed originally to both home seamstresses and professionals alike and assume that you have a basic understanding of clothing construction. The original patterns DO NOT include any sewing instructions or facings. To sew these, you should have a basic understanding of how pattern pieces should fit together. The pattern pieces are illustrated in such a way that you can see how they are supposed to be sewn to each other.

DIFFICULTY LEVEL: These patterns might be a bit difficult for the beginner but an intermediate level home seamstress will most likely have little trouble.
