I consider myself an advanced seamstress with advanced knowledge of pattern pieces, but there are two pieces on this pattern (Cropped Jacket) that I cannot figure out. They are pieces 6 & 7 and are rectangular in nature. I think one of them MAY be the belt.
In the cutting out portion, it does not even specify how many to cut out (it skips from 5a to 8a). The pattern pieces itself only tell me “fold” “seam” and “straight grain”.
Can anybody help, please? I am planning on making this jacket as a punk/rock style for my son for his prom later this month. (I’m using embroidered corduroy, black velveteen, and copious amounts of silver gimp.) Whatever happened to tuxedos?
