I'm looking for a pattern for a Victorian civilian sack coat and fishtail trousers. I've found plenty of people selling them in the US but the postage makes it too expensive. Do you lot know of anyone selling them in the U.K.?

Have you visited your local sewing shop?
Simplicity/burda patterns are available in the UK.

I think there is Burda in the U.K.
I've found this pattern in a local sewing shop in the Netherlands.
I'm not sure if this is exactly what you are looking for...

The best patterns that I have found anywhere for Victorian men's clothes, (I cant really comment on the women's clothing patterns, as I don't wear them.) Is LAUGHING MOON MERCANTILE.
You can buy their patterns in the UK from HABITAT.
They sell a SACK COAT PATTERN, and a MID VICTORIAN, EDWARDIAN TROUSER PATTERN.
They also sell a pattern that combines a FROCK COAT PATTERN, AND TWO VICTORIAN WAISTCOAT PATTERNS, which I can recommend.

Laughing Moon Mercantile patterns are not the easiest to make, but they are accurate, and well researched. and the instructions are sufficiently detailed to make them followable by any reasonably competent sewer.

The laughing moon patterns are the ones I've been looking at, didn't realise you could get them from habitat!

I am glad to have been of service.
I would be interested to hear your thoughts on the patterns, and look foward to seing pictures posted here of the finished garments.
