This pattern is an add-on for the basic jacket pattern 1945. It includes patch and welt pocket styles, and a new front, collar, and facings to create this style. You must have pattern 1945 to complete this garment.

I've always heard how you love to get a perfect fitting jacket, but would like to then change the neckline or pockets or something.... So, this is my answer. Once you have jacket 1945 fitting well, then you've got this winner with a new front, collar, facings and two different pocket styles. In a flat fabric with the welt pocket this will look very Italian sophisticated, and in a nubby or boucle fabric with the patch pockets, this will look very ooh, la, la French. Get the picture? Enjoy yourself and your sewimagination. Count on more variations.
