To make the pattern for this variation of the Talea coat, print out the entire Talea pattern. You will be altering the following three pieces:
#1- Center Front
#2- Side Front
#9- Collar Stand
You will use these following pieces as they are on the Talea pattern:
#3- Center Back
#4- Side Back
#6- Sleeve Front
#7- Sleeve Back
#10- Back Facing
#16- Sleeve Latches
You will not be using these pieces at all:
#12- Pocket Flap
Now take Piece #1. Take note of the center front line, as shown in orange above. This will remain the center front, but instead of keeping the facing to the right of this line, we will cut off the facing.
