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!

Oh I’m so happy this pattern came out! And even more happy it did just before I was about to leave on my big fabric-shopping trip, per-fect timing!
I have now spent over half my week end taping & cutting, there are sooo many pieces… But it looks like it’s worth it :) yay, I’m so excited to start sewing (in about 5hours of slippery lining cutting… haha).

Congratulations! This looks like a fabulous pattern, will definitely be finding some time to make one for the husband. On entering the discount code in the store, a message appears saying it is invalid. Something I’m doing wrong??

The photo is from a previous pizza night but last night we made two delicious thin crusts. #1 was topped with sliced venison steak (cooked previously), sliced pear, garlic, red pepper, mozzarella and pizza sauce. Once it was cooked we topped it with arugula – yum! #2 was more classic with salami, sundried tomatoes, olives, artichoke hearts, feta and that sort of thing (also really good).

Thanks Heather! :)

It certainly is :) The photo was from a different pizza night so we didn’t play Settlers last night but it’s a tradition with us whenever we have a pizza night with one of our friends (it’s his game). So much fun!

Thanks! Not too long for the paper pattern now.

Thanks! The piping was super easy – I was walking to the till with my lining and fabric and noticed a bundle of the green ready-made piping in a clearance bin and snagged it due to the perfect colour match! I just placed it in the seam when I sewed the lining to the facing. Not too long of a wait for the paper pattern now!

Oh lord that piping on the lining is GORGEOUS!! I think I’m going to hang out for the paper version (easier and prettier to store) but I can imagine Mr. Guy really liking this when I ever get around to making it for him!! Maybe for this coming winter…
