    What size do you need? I have a couple but it is a really basic jacket pattern that is supposed to use fusible interfacing.

    And the kilt part of the pattern is totally useless.

    This is the link for the review from Sewing Pattern Reviews
    https://sewing.patternreview.com/rev...ttern/43554?ID

    Im sure more learned members will be able to tell you if the style/cut is correct for kilt wear... I have no idea.

    There are plenty of links on the internet for better tailoring instructions and many local libraries have good reference books as well.

    Mainelymenswear popped up here in the forum a year or two ago for help making his kilt.
    https://mainelymenswear.com
    He has some Fantastic information, pictures, tutorials and links/resources for Jacket making on his blog, you just need to search and read back.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks Steve, I'm looking for the Large/Extra Large sizing.

    Mickydee,

    I have just pulled the patterns out of my bin and find that the Large/Extra Large size is the one that got the most use and some of the pieces are a bit worse for wear.
    I just would not feel comfortable sending someone such a well used pattern.

    I wish you luck in your search.

    This is a little dated and esoteric but it might be of interest. check out document page 44 for "Types of Highland Dress."

    I assume you have seen this one? Quite pricey, but your size at least....

    Have you seen this Folkwear pattern for kilt and Prince Charlie? It is no better or worse than the Simplicity pattern.

    https://www.folkwear.com/products/15...nt=35177281358

    But really if it is all the Argyle jacket pattern that you are looking for almost any single button, two rear vent jacket pattern will work.
    You just do the same as someone who starts with a sport coat and cuts it off in length and cuts the sporran curve.

    If you like the gauntlet cuffs those are simple to add.

    That's essentially what my wife did when she made herself an argyle-inspired jacket. She used a regular pattern which fit her, adjusted the bottom and added the detailing on the cuffs and pocket flaps. The most important thing, naturally, is that the jacket fits you well, the rest is pretty much just detailing. There is, however, an awful lot of "stuff" built into the typical sport coat to give it the proper shape and body - layers of various materials hidden inside. You may be able to get away without some of it on a home-built jacket, but not all of it if you want a good fit with crisp lines.

    She used Cheviot tweed with lapel facings from our Dalgliesh tartan.
