Lay out the pattern pieces on the fabric. Add the following amounts for seam allowances: 5 cm/2 in at the lower edge, 2 cmAi in at the shoulders and sides, 1 cm/1/4 in for the rest of the seams. Mark the buttonholes. Cut out the front and back pieces and the back facing.
Sew the shoulder and side seams. Sew the shoulder seams of the facing. Right sides together, sew the facing to the neck and lower edges of the front.
Cut the lining in the same way as the jacket, except at the center front, where you should follow the dotted line. Sew the shoulder and side seams of the lining. Press the seams open and sew the lining into the jacket. Baste the lining and jacket together at the arm-holes, zigzagging the edges.
