This is a DIGITAL sewing pattern for a 1890´s Lounge Jacket.

The Lounge Jacket shown in this sewing pattern, is based on a pattern from the book “The cutters practical guide” by W.D.F. Vincent. The single breasted jacket has three instead of four buttons and wider lapels in contrast to former jackets.
The jacket has double welt pocket with flaps on both sides, a ticket pocket on the right side at the waistline (double welt with flap) and a welt pocket on the left chest.
The shoulder seam is moved back as usual during the 19th century, thin shoulder pads made from two or three layers of wadding are inserted to give the shoulder the desired shape.

The front and collar are stiffened with hair canvas, alternatively a midweight linen fabric can be used. The canvas is pad stitched to the lapel and collar, a technique still used today in tailoring men´s jackets.

I recommend sturdy jacket and coat fabrics from wool or wool blends, avoid lightweight modern suit fabrics.

This instruction shows the classic tailoring of a men´s jacket. All interfacing/canvas can be replaced by fusible as desired and modern working can be chosen but will not be mentioned in the further.
The construction of the collar is explained using under collar felt which can be replaced by any nonwoven midweight felt fabric from wool or polyester.

Also suitable for steampunk or cosplay costumes.
