MERCHANT AND MILLS • The Foreman Jacket Sewing Pattern
Merchant and Mills Foreman Jacket Sewing Pattern. Inspired by traditional workwear of the early fifties, the practical and hardwearing Foreman sewing pattern is an unlined utilitarian jacket made to take charge. Designed by Merchant and Mills, it features a boxy cut, 2 piece sleeves, a neat square collar, 2 hip pockets and one breast pocket. Can be optionally top-stitched in contrasting thread.
This is a multi-size paper sewing pattern including sizes 36 – 46. Seam allowances are included in the pattern at 1.5cm, unless otherwise stated.
This jacket has been cut and designed for a man, however it can easily be adapted for women. For example, the lengthened Foreman that the female model is wearing – this is a size 38 at the shoulder graded out at the underarm/side seam to a size 42 and lengthened to a finished length of 110cm.
