The Pekka jacket is drafted for an average hight of 167 cm for the range 1 or 168 cm for range 2 so if you differ from that, you might need to do some pattern adjustments. Lengthening and shortening your pattern pieces is pretty straighforward, find the lengthen/shorten lines and apply your length changes between them.
1: Determine how much length you need to add or substract from your pattern. Simply cut along the shorten/lengthen line, separating the pattern into two pieces.
2: Lay a sheet of paper down with the pattern pieces on top of it and line up the pattern's grain lines. Tape your pattern pieces down to the paper (or, if shortening, to each other) and blend the curve or straight edge to connect either edge of the pattern. Cut off the excess paper.
