THE following drafts illustrate the cutting of mess jackets for the Infantry and the Artillery. The regulations for the Infantry are: Scarlet cloth, roll collar; pointed cuffs, 6″ deep at the point and 2 3/4″ behind; four small buttons and button-holes down the front. Shoulder straps 1 1/2″ wide at the base, tapering to about 1″ at the points, fastened with a small button. The shoulder straps to be sewn in at the shoulder.

The regulations for the Artillery are: Blue cloth, with blue cloth step collar and scarlet corded silk facings on the lapel. Four small ball buttons down each side of the front. Round cuffs of blue cloth, 2 3/4″ deep, welted at the top and fitted with a three-pointed flap of the same material 5 1/2″ deep, welted at the outside edges, three small ball buttons and false buttonholes. Shoulder straps of blue cloth, 1 1/2″ wide at the base, tapering to about 1″ at the points; fastened with small ball buttons; the shoulder straps to be sewn in at the shoulder. Badges of rank in metal, buttons with mounted design. No collar badges.

The measures are: 36″ breast; 32″ waist; 8 3/4″ depth of scye; 17 1/2″ natural waist; 21″ full length; 6 3/4″ across back; 31 1/2″ length of sleeve; 8 1/4″ across chest; 13″ front shoulder; 17″ over-shoulder.

SECTION A. INFANTRY MESS JACKET. Diagram 10

To reproduce, draw line 0, 4.

2 from 0, depth of scye, 8 3/4″.

1 from 0, half depth of scye plus 1/2″, 4 7/8″.

3 from 0, natural waist length, 17 1/2″.

4 from 0, full length, 21″.

Square lines from these points.

5 from 0 is one-sixth of scale less 1/4″, 2 3/4″.

From 5 mark up 3/4″ and curve back neck.

6 from 3 is 1″.

Draw the back from 0 through 1/2 and 6 to 7.

10 from 6 is 1 1/2″.

DIAGRAM 10.

8 from 7 is also 1 1/2″.

9 from 8 is 1″.

14 from point 1/4 is the width of back plus 1/4″ for one seam only, as the back is cut on the crease.

15 is one-sixth of scale from 14; also square down to 18.

16 from 15 is 3/4″.

Connect 16 with 14 and draw back shoulder seam.

DIAGRAM 11.

11 from 1/2 is 3 1/2″; side seam of back may now be completed.

12 from 10 is 1 1/2″.

13 is obtained by using 14 as a pivot and sweeping from 9.

33 from 11, for the width of side-body at breast, is 1/4 scale, 4 1/2″.

27 from 12, for the width of side-body at waist, is 1/4 scale less 1″, 3 1/2″.

28 from 27 is 1 3/4″.

26 from point 1/2 is half breast plus 2″, 20″.

20 from 26 registers the across chest measure, 8 1/4″.

Square up from 20, 1 1/2″.

22 is obtained by sweeping the front shoulder measure 13″, less width of back neck from 0 to 5, from 20.

Add 1″ and sweep again from 26.

The point at which these sweeps intersect locates the neck-point at 22.

21 is obtained by sweeping the over-shoulder measure 17″, less the distance from 1/2 to 17 on back, from 20.

21 from 22 is 1/4″ less than back shoulder from 16 to 3/4.

Rule a line from 21 to 1 1/2 and hollow 1/2″.

19 from 33 is about 1″.

29 from 27 is 1 1/4″.

30 from 29 is 2″.

31 is fixed by measuring up waist from 6 to 10, 12 to 27, and 29 to front, adding 1/2″ to half-waist measure, totalling 16 1/2″.

23 from 22 is one-sixth of scale.

24 from 23 is one-sixth of scale plus 1 1/2″, 4 1/2″.

Draw a line from 23 through 24 and 26 to 31.

32 from 31 is 4 1/2″.

Rule a line from 29 to 32 and shape from 30 as shown.

25 from 24 is 1″.

33 from 26 is about 1 1/2″, or enough to allow the roll to make up about 3″.

A horizontal cut is taken out below points 26 and 33.

Also take a fish from the forepart at waist.

SECTION B. THE SLEEVE

Section B gives the sleeve.

To reproduce, draw line 0, 4.

1 from 0 is 5 1/2″.

2 from 1 is 9 3/4″.

3 from 1 is 19 1/2″.

4 from 3 is 1 1/2.″

Square lines from 0, 2, and 4.

7 from 0 is 9″.

6 is midway between 7 and 0, 4 1/2″.

8 from 7 is 1 1/2″.

Rule a line from 6 to 1 and add 7/8″ of round.

5 from 2 is 1″.

9 from 5 measures 7 3/4″.

10 from 3 measures 6 1/4″.

11 from 8 is 2″.

Rule a line from 1 to 11 and hollow 1″.

In drawing the hind-arm from 8 to 9, hollow 1/2″ as shown.

Cut the hind-arm of underside correspondingly round.

SECTION C. ARTILLERY MESS JACKET Diagram 11

Section C illustrates the front of the artillery mess jacket, the back and sides being cut the same as for infantry.

The custom has been to cut a separate lapel; but the latest plan, as here given, is to cut the lapel on.

A button stand must be allowed beyond points 31 and 32.

A cut is taken from the neck as indicated.
