Trace the pattern pieces from the pattern sheet. Trace the pocket from piece 1 as a separate pattern piece – it is the same for all sizes.
The buttonholes on piece 1 are marked for size 48. For sizes 50 – 56, mark the top buttonhole the same distance from neck edge as for size 48. The bottom buttonhole is in the same place for all sizes. Space the other buttonholes evenly in between.
Seam and hem allowances:
Seams and edges 1.5 cm (5/8 in), upper edge of pocket 2.5 cm (1 in), sleeve vent band 7 mm (1/4 in) (lower edge 1.5 cm / 5/8 in), hem 1.5 cm (5/8 in), no allowance on lengthwise edge of front self-facing.
