Congratulations to deadlycraft who was randomly chosen from the 40 (wow, 40!!!!) amazing comments left on our Goldstream Peacoat contest post throughout the week. We hope you enjoy sewing up our peacoat pattern once it has been released!
Thank you, everyone, SO MUCH for providing us with such a wealth of information! I have many happy hours of sewing related research ahead of me. I especially took note of the tailoring books a few of you mentioned. And, I agree with the many of you who mentioned Peter Lappin's amazing blog...it is a huge wealth of menswear sewing information and inspiration!
Now that the contest is over, have a look at what all your comments created: The official Encyclopedia Peacoatica
! I hope everyone will find it helpful once they embark on their big peacoat sewing project! It will be a permanent fixture in our blog sidebar along with our Jedediah Sew-Along
and the other pages we have created.
Since a post isn't a proper post without some inspiring pictures, here are a couple great projects we've seen around the sewing corner of the internet lately:

Huff's awesome red Jeds. I love that she calls them that! We call the Strathcona Henley Strath...so here is Huff's Strath and Jeds outfit. She is planning to make twelve entire outfits for her husband. Wow, what an undertaking![/caption]
