Been looking at my patterns and jackets and trying to figure this one out. How do I raise the notch on a jacket pattern? As in bring it up higher on the body, if that makes sense? See pic.
I recently bought a new jacket pattern and the notch is way too low. It’s down by my chest when I’d rather it be near my throat. It’s not 80s bad, but it’s much lower than how I prefer it.
The only way I’m seeing it right now is to make the neck hole on the pattern smaller and adjusting the collar accordingly, which would raise the gorge line and the notch, while also making the lapel thinner which is also something I’m trying to accomplish (I think they are tied together?). I’d have to adjust the jacket length for this, too, which should be fine since its also pretty long. Worried, though, this will mess up the arm hole position. ARGH so confusing.
If anyone has any resources for this, I’d appreciate it. Thanks!
