We are so thrilled to finally be able to offer you this pattern, especially since it is the pattern we have received the most requests and comments about.

For those of you who are holding out for the printed version of our pattern, it is currently at our printers and we swear, you won’t have to wait much longer!
The Goldstream Peacoat is a large PDF file so we recommend taking it to the printers to save yourself printer ink, tape and time. If you have a Staples near by or a similar roll feed printer, it is quite affordable and very quick to have it printed. At Staples, ask for their cheap Engineer Prints. If you don’t have a roll feed print shop available to you, it is still, of course, completely possible to print it at home and tape it together. I did so myself when I sewed Matt’s Christmas peacoat. I always collect the paper we have printed things onto and re-use the second side of the paper for PDF patterns, that way it feels like I’m not ‘wasting’ quite so many resources. Despite the pattern being quite large I was able to get into the rhythm of things and finish the taping and cutting out of the paper pattern pieces in one marathon evening. I think PDF assembly is my cat Jazzy’s favourite thing in the whole wide world so her paper-hunting antics greatly add to my enjoyment of the process!
Now, excuse us as we head off to celebrate the launch of our BIGGEST AND BEST pattern yet with a home-made pizza night (that’s the best way to celebrate any sort of momentous occasion). Yummm…
We are so proud of this pattern – we think it really is the perfect foray into outerwear for an intermediate sewer and hope that you will agree! For a thorough description of what the pattern has to offer, check out this post which highlights my father-in-law’s Goldstream Peacoat. And, for your viewing pleasure, here is a gallery of photos so you can thoroughly examine Matt’s Christmas Goldstream Peacoat while you begin planning your own version:
Now go make yours – we can’t wait to see your perfect peacoat! Happy Sewing!
