Sew Magazine is offering a 3 month subscription, with a free coat pattern and 3.5 m of woolen fabric for £19.99.   The pattern is Simplicity 1254 but only up to size 12.  There is a larger pattern available online but  there will not be enough fabric for larger sizes.

Do you have a link to the offer. It's a nice pattern I had a coat very similar to the main picture and loved the style.

Update.  Have to correct myself, again, having seen the pattern 'in the flesh' , the 3.5m would make a jacket in any size.  I was trying to read the back of the packet on the tablet and it is very small print. 
It will depend on the width obviously, but you could make a coat up to size 16 if it is 115cm wide, or any if it is 150cm.
So, a more useful offer than I thought.

I have that pattern although I haven't made it yet. It is a nice pattern and that looks like a very good offer.

Looked at the magazine, it says 3.0 m of fabric. Idiot, I thought, but I am sure I saw 3.5m.  So I looked at the online subscription form. Sure enough, 3.5. So who knows?   3.0 would make the jacket, but the blurb asks "which coat will YOU make?". So I still don't know.
