Eccentric Square to Round

I am trying to make a eccentric square to round transition out of sheet metal in Solidworks 2014.  I know later releases will allow this as a lofted bend but I need to figure out a way to do it in 2014 or older.  I am attaching a file that I have been messing with that has the loft with the shape that I would like but it will not let me add bends to the part.  Anyone have a better way to accomplish this?  The part is 10" square on one end and 8" round on the other, needs to have offset angle of 15° and the round opening is coincident to the square side on the shortest offset side.  The end goal is to have two halves and weld them together.  I can lay this out in 2D cad but would like to have it in Solidworks.
