I have a Simplicity 2742 mens long sleeve that uses a continuous lap placket. Tried one on scrap material concluding it's not for me, too tricky and think it's ugly. I would like an alternate pattern for only the placket. Does anyone know where I might find one either on line or a purchase. Being my first the pattern will need to have all stitching lines, seam allowances and alignment dots etc.. I have another Simplicity pattern but it's the same continuous lap. Thanks

Here are the instructions I use. I just ignore what is included in the pattern and just draw my own. Remember, you may need to slightly alter the cuff, too, if you use this method.

I recently used the threads cuff placket. There's a pattern you can print out and very clear directions.
