This is the Proportionate Vest pattern taken from the New Supreme System for production of Mens Garments (AKA the Red Book) by Fredrick Croonborg. The book is available to download at Archive.org: https://archive.org/stream/newsupremesystem00croo#page/106/mode/2up This pattern was made with test build Valentina 0.6.0.217. The Tape is measurements of a Wolf mens 38. The pattern makes use of:
- Groups to hide or show objects
- Labels & grain lines and pins to locate them
- Variable seam allowances
- Passmarks (AKA notches)
- Internal paths to locate pockets, darts & button holes
Notes: The Supreme system relied on using an assumed 4" drop (the waist is 4 less than the chest.) Consequently if measurements applied exceed the more modern drop of 6", the front of the vest and facing start to distort. In a case such as this it’s best to add to the waist measurement, then suppress more of the waist with the darts.
