Below some pictures of Tara wearing her tuxedo jacket (with the vest).
Tara wears M size.
Optionally you can add a back loop with two little buttons as decoration on the back, just above the opening. You can also add breast pockets or a small white flower on the lapel.
To make this jacket you can use different types of fabrics such as cloth, cotton, wool, satin, etc … preferably use a lightly stiff fabric, then don’t need to use interfacing for the collar.
Clarification: this jacket design is made without lining to make it easier to do.
Patterns are 5:
CHEST: cut 2 opposites
BACK: cut 2 opposites
COLLAR: cut with the fabric folded in half to make it twice as long. Cut out two equal pieces of fabric.
LAPEL: cut two opposites
SLEEVE: cut two opposites
HOW TO SEW TUXEDO JACKET STEP BY STEP:
BACK: Place rights sides facing together and sew the center seam till where the opening begins.
Iron the seam open and finish with zig zag stitch to prevent fraying.
Sew edge stitch along the edge of the back opening.
Place the front piece and the lapel piece with right side facing together and sew all the seam except the end of the line that goes attached to the collar.
Cut corners and turn right side out, iron. Sew the shoulder seam and zig zag stitch.
Place collar pieces with right sides facing together and sew all around, except the base line. Cut corners and turn right side out, iron.
Pin the collar attached to the bodice starting from the back seam. Make a small cut where the collar ends on the front pieces as you can see in the picture below.
Sew one layer of the collar to the bodice. Let the other layer loose. See picture below.
Now sew the other layer of the collar. Fold the seam allowance inward hiding the previous seam and finally sew over stitch as you can see in the animated image below.
Sew edgestitch all along the collar and lapel for a perfect finish.
Sewing the sleeves. Make a hem of the sleeve.
First pin the sleeves to the bodice with right sides of the fabric facing together, sew the sleeve all along the armhole curve and zig zag this seam.
Pin the sleeves and side seams together and sew the sleeves starting from the cuff all the way down, around the armpit, and down the entire side of the jacket and zig zag.
Sew the bottom hem of the jacket.
Sew buttons and buttonholes
Sew back loop with two little buttons and ready !!
