Well in my last post i mentioned starting a late 1950’s pattern for a regulation sports jacket and I have made a start.
Wow! what a difference. Firstly the pattern is not printed but cut and punched with holes to represent different things.
Secondly the instructions are beautiful, not only in looks but quality. I had to read a few steps many times but then it became very clear what to do. The illustrations are also brilliant.
So far…. I have cut out the pieces and used tailors tacks to mark the appropriate pattern marks (white thread for seams, blue for squares and red for slash lines)
