    My dancepartner is wanting to get a jacket appropirate for dancing in to go with one of kilts we have a tailor who is prepared to do it just need to find a pattern

    Good luck with that. I've never seen a pattern that wouldn't need to be modified.

    Moreover, tailsuits are not that expensive anymore. a new one can cost you around 400-500 pounds by dsi for example. A used one will cost you even less, if you search you'll find ones starting at around 150 GBP.

    In other words, the hassle of making a tailsuit, doesnt make up the costs of buying one.

    Anyway goodluck searching for a pattern

    I don't think one would wear a tailcoat with a kilt, though.

    thinking more of plain jacket rather than tails and reason for not buying is to get it made in fabric to match exsisting kilt

    so far no joy with pattern :(

    Make it sure that the plain jacket does not have shoulder pads.

    I think the poster is asking about having a *dance jacket* made to match the kilt.
