I've been looking for any kind of sporting jacket pattern for a man online and don't seem to be able to find ANYthing. I've found jackets to purchase, but not interested.

My particular interest is in Edwardian Shooting Jackets. A popular one is the Norfolk jacket. Something like this:



I hunt with old side-by-side shotguns and want to dress in vintage style (sort of like those people that dress up like knights and do battle on public lawns... except hopefully a bit less weird ). Some matching Breeks would of course be a must.

I did come up with a more Victorian shooting jacket from Patterns of Time, but not quite what I'm looking for. This is an example:



Any resources out there to find patterns?

Thanks,

MD

You might be able to find patternmaking instructions for one in The Cutter's Practical Guide

Norfolk Shooting Jackets are covered in Part 9.

Not quite Edwardian, though.

It's probably easiest for you to take a three-button suit jacket and alter it to have the design details you want. It's relatively easy to change the lower pockets to patch pockets with flaps. The belt loops are really just rectangles.

A little more difficulty may be had trying to alter the back to have the typical action back pleats. That, too, isn't such a big deal, as the pleat underlays are rectangular.

You might want to start with a safari jacket (Vogue and KwikSew OOP versions are on eBay), that typically has the action back and patch pockets. I think they also have front and back yokes, which are common in shooting jackets.

I think in a Norfolk Jacket exemplar the belt loops become straps that extend from the pocket up to the bottom of the front yoke. In back, the straps go from the hem to the back yoke.

A shooting jacket is a bit more fashionable, and a lot more practical if it has cut on gussets. After all, if you can't raise your shotgun to your shoulder, what use is it?

The Cutter and Tailor has some pattern drafts. One source is from 1905.

We were talking about how to alter for action backs in this thread http://sewing.patternreview.com/SewingDiscussions/topic/57547/1

I like the idea of the sleeve with the cut-on gusset, but I have to say that it doesn't seem that much different (but much harder to refine the pattern) than a single knife pleat near each armscye. Still, it's a very interesting idea.
