HOW TO MAKE THE CUTOUTS:
FOR THE BACK PIECE: FOLD A PIECE OF NEWSPAPER IN HALF AND FOLLOW THESE MEASUREMENTS
A: shoulders. the measurement of this depends on what you want. i suggest about an two inches away from you neck to your shoulder. make sure that the two parts line up and the measurements are the same.
B: collar. make the collar about an inch or an inch and a half, and make sure that when it’s folded over that it still equals the back shoulder piece EXACTLY.
C: sides: measure yourself 2 inches down from your armpit all the way to your desired length of your vest. make sure that the sides on the back piece equal the side on the front piece.
D: sleeves: for this part, i recommend measuring a shirt or something.. if not just make a cresent shape connecting the shoulders to the sides.
E: measure the bottom of your favorite shirt on the bottom seam, divide by two and there you go.
F: i guess just draw a cresent shape.. i don’t really know how to clarify this one, it’s up to you and your measurement skills. just make sure that it WORKS FOR YOU.
p.s. don’t forget seam allowances.
for the front pieces:
-make sure the sides, sleeves, and shoulders are all the same measurements
-where the buttons would be, make sure that the front piece is more than half of the back piece, so that when you make your two pieces, they overlap.
-the actual shape of the collar is up to you, and depends on how steep or high you want it.
-to add the point at the bottom, ..umm, it’s up to you how pointly, long, or short you want it. be creative.
-dictate where the buttons will go.
BAM you done.
