I used regular 8 1/2″ × 11″ copy paper I taped together to make big enough pieces to make patterns from the jacket I bought at Walmart. I made one for the back panel, one for the collar, a strip for the cuffs, the top flaps of the pockets, and lastly the panels beneath the pockets. You lay the paper over the part of the jacket you’re wanting to add a panel inlay to, and give yourself about 1/2" ‘seam allowance’ which is basically the excess material turned under and hand sewn down to the jacket. You can do the same areas I did or more, or less, depending on what effect you’re looking to achieve.
