The Foreman

Inspired by traditional workwear of the early fifties, the practical and hardwearing Foreman is an unlined utilitarian jacket made to get the job done. Designed and sized for men, it features a boxy cut, 2 piece sleeves, a neat square collar, 2 hip pockets, and one breast pocket. Pick up 2 1/2 to 4 yards of strong cotton, denim, or linen. You will also need a yard of fusible interfacing, matching thread, optional contrast top thread, and four 3/4-inch buttons. Merchant & Mills considers this pattern suitable for an intermediate.
