Question Pattern help

I'm doing a Mad Hatter Shaco, his jacket has no collar or lapel so I'm thinking of cutting this pattern where the red line is. So my question is, if I cut off the lapel should I cut the pattern where the blue line is as well? I'm thinking yes, but I want a second opinion.

Far better to cut your pattern piece with the tab, begin sewing, THEN learn you don't need that tab, then to cut it off and then learn you DID need it.

I googled the pattern to see the whole thing, I cannot figure out for the life of me why that pattern piece is shaped that way. It should be to the top of the shoulder, which means you need it, but I can't figure out what goes there, because the sleeve looks ordinary. Leave it on, it's only a couple inches of fabric.
Nothing is impossible, but some things are very expensive.
