MERCHANT AND MILLS • The Foreman Jacket
Inspired by traditional workwear of the early fifties, the practical and hardwearing Foreman is an unlined utilitarian jacket made to take charge. 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 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.
