Everything went well, so it’s time to return to the cutting bench and prepare some more pieces for assembly.
Pair 2 -I am cutting the sleeves for the suit now, and its a pretty forgone conclusion that the lower sleeves will be cut from the fronts of the trousers due to their width at the shoulder (see left, top); and the upper sleeves are cut from the backs (see left, below).
Size 34 x 34
I have positioned the upper sleeves as low as possible, leaving me a decent piece of off-cut.
I cut this just before I needed to set it, to make sure I cut it to fit correctly.
Pair 1 -I’ve returned to the pair that gave me the back of the jacket to cut the lapel facings.
Size 34 x 30
While I’m on the cutting bench and have the pattern pieces to hand, I also cut what I need for the lining.
The backs are cut with the vent allowance (see above); and a special panel is shaped and cut to cover the front panel, minus the lapel facing.
This is pretty much everything I need now to complete the Ultimate Tennant Suit!
