Goldstream Peacoat (Print)
A classic peacoat with modern options, this design is the perfect introduction to menswear tailoring as the detailed instructions will help you create a beautifully finished coat even if you are intimidated by sewing outerwear. The design includes a narrow double breast that sits nicely both buttoned and open.
Various details can be left out or included such as: epaulets, lined patch pockets, pocket flaps, an interior patch pocket, a removable hood (using buttons), and sleeve tabs.
This design is easy to fit with an optional slimming front dart and a center back seam. Few body panels make it relatively simple to sew and it is fully lined with detailed instructions on how to insert the lining and hand-sew the hems.
The Goldstream Peacoat would suit everything from a classic navy wool with fouled anchor buttons to a rustic tweed with leather closures.
This pattern, as part of the Parkland Casual Collection, is a modern slim-fitting design with athletic sizing. It is a classic garment that lends itself to creating the perfect casual, hand-made wardrobe for an active lifestyle.

Medium to heavy weight wools such as gabardine, tweed, hounds-tooth, worsted wool, boiled and especially any wool labeled 'coating'. Choose a weight that your machine will be comfortable handling.
Lightweight lining fabrics such as silk, polyester or rayon lining. For a warmer coat choose soft, medium weight fabrics such as flannel, quilted lining materials, or brushed cotton. Consider using slippery materials for the sleeves and warm fabrics for the body.
