I got my hands on some really cute pink nylon and want to make a raincoat for my niece (she'll be 1 in October). I can't seem to find any raincoat patterns out there (i.e. that traditional yellow rain slicker) and am hoping that someone can help. I made one for my cousin years ago, but can't find that pattern in my stash (found the pattern for my high school grad dress, but can I find the pattern I need--no!)

Thanks for any guidance you can provide.

Oliver + S makes an adorable (but expensive) pattern for a rain jacket.

Amy Butler has a new one out. It starts at size 3. I don't have it, so I can't offer an opinion!

This is a really cute pattern. I will save the info on it since I am also wanting to make a raincoat for my 2 year old grandaughter .I have the teflon foot ready to go and some cute Michael Miller laminated cotton. I ran to my stack of pattern baskets because I thought I had one. No luck...I guess I was trying to find a pattern too.

Ottobre did one in their kids magazine - 4/2009. They used Anna Maria Horner's fabric on the cover.
The Amy Butler pattern is fairly new - it is cute.

The simplicity costume patterns for halloween usually have a firefighter outfit. This makes a well- fitting ( good fitting?) basic raincoat.

In general, the costume patterns seem to fit better than the regular patterns, and I don't know why.

Thanks so much for all the help. I saw the Oliver + S pattern, and I may end up doing that one, but I never thought of the firefighter costume. I'm off to check that one out. I'll post whatever coat I end up making!
