Hi! I just discovered this forum tonight and am posting because I am stumped. I have a raglan jacket draft and am trying to add in a shawl collar, my raglan line ends in the middle of the neckline. Normally, I would draft a diagonal line from my breakpoint to the neckline intersection, but am confused since my front is in two pieces (the raglan which includes the neck and shoulder intersection and the front piece where the breakpoint is). My question is, how would I draft this with the neckline intersection and breakpoint being on two different pieces? Do I start off with the diagonal line connecting to a different spot? Or do I still draft to the neckline on a diagonal and then... where would I go from there (I had to cut my draft to get rid of a shoulder dart, so the pieces are literally split in two at the beginning of the raglan seam)
Hope I am not being confusing, it is hard to explain! Thanks in advance for any help or advice!

Hello Hi2111,

I have no idea about how to help you but I am bumping this to the top in the hopes that someone can!

Can you post a picture of the question you are asking?

Shawl color jackets are my favorite.

When I have made them I used a pattern already designed for the shawl collar. Usually the collar was already attached to the rest of the jacket on the jacket front and you just add the facing and it's done.

Good luck with this--and Welcome To PR!

Carla

I just remembered this article at Threads magazine.

Maybe it will help you.

Thank you so much for your welcome, help, and link! I am happy to be here :)

I think I figured it out this morning, I must have been too tired last night to think clearly. My fingers are crossed it works, I'll find out soon enough I guess!
