Thread Theory : Goldstream Peacoat
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.
Recommended Fabric: Main Fabric: medium to heavy weight wool such as gabardine, tweed, houndstooth, worsted wool, boiled and melton wool. Lining: lightweight lining fabric such as silk, polyester or rayon. For a warmer coat, choose soft, medium weight fabric such a flannel, quilted lining materials, or brushed cotton, Consider using slippery materials for the sleeves and warm fabric for the body.
