How cool is this raincoat????
Very cool according to my girls!
Rain is becoming an everyday part of living in Queensland & I am fed up with getting wet.
So, I am starting a campaign to make raincoats cool again!
Gone is the bright yellow plastic raincoat, here to stay is the latest fashion raincoats!
Who is in???
If you are wanting to make a fashionable raincoat, I used the
that I purchased from Wrapped in Fabric
Yep, it was raining when I decided to act like a crazy woman for this photo shoot but I can say I was loving every minute of being able to get wet & know that my clothes would stay dry.
I like to make simple things so I opted to leave the pockets out. I really don’t like pockets because they just encourage me to carry more things than I need to.
I also did not put any buttons on this at all because when you are wanting to get a raincoat on quickly, the only thing you need is a belt.
You can add the pockets & the buttons if you wish, all instructions for them are in the pattern.
This is a great multisized pattern & I think that both my 11 & 12 (nearly 13, can’t forget that!) daughters will both be able to have one made in their size from the same pattern.
I made this from thick quilters cotton & 2 layers of Scotchgaurd (spray waterproofing for fabric).
You could use oilcloth or a laminated fabric.
It is completely lined & reversible if you don’t add the buttons.
