The Foreman Hack
This is a hack for making our men’s pattern, the Foreman, a neater fit for a woman. The jacket and sleeves are shortened and it is taken down a grade at the shoulder. To work out which size to make, we would suggest looking at the finished chest measurement ad either compare this with a jacket you like the fit of, or use a tape measure around your bust to check size/ease.
Our model is a size 10, 5.6, and is wearing a 38 (which has been graded to a 36 at the shoulder). The jacket is made out a soft cotton canvas – fabric coming soon.
The Foreman pattern can be found here.
