I recycled the lining of my first coat to make this one.
Peek at the recycled lining
Lined raincoat with patch pockets, adjustable hoodie, elastics at the sleeves, zipper and velcro strips in front.
98-128. I made a size 116.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
It does, except that since I (purposedly) made it too big, it's much longer than on the picture.
Lining-not bagged, hangs free
Were the instructions easy to follow?
The instructions are really nice. I don't know of any other magazine than Ottobre that'd not only gives instructions but actual tips and tricks like pressing with baking paper in between if you don't have a Teflon iron. And then they also tell you how to seal to seam so that you child will actually stay dry under the rain. The instructions get an A.
There's a place where they tell you to gather the bottom of the pockets. Ignore that, these are regular patch pockets.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I liked the challenge of sewing with oilcloth. And I liked that this pattern has all the features and details you'll find on a regular raincoat: windscreen strip, adjustable hood, hanging loop. And with the velcro strips in front you can tell it was designed to look good AND keep your kid warm and dry. What's a mom to ask more?
Coated cotton for the shell and polka dot cotton for the lining
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I would sew this again and I recommend it.
Not an easy project as seam ripping was contraindicated and pressing was delicate too. If that's intimidating, I think this pattern would make beautiful coats in fabrics other than oilcloth too, as Ottobre states.
