it looks so nice. I like the pokadots that you used for the lining. I just might have to try that pattern. Have fun wearing it.

@okie2thdoc: I didn't seal the seams with anything, although I did use polyester thread which resists wicking. I figured if it worked for cloth diapers it would work for this; a raincoat is sort of like a cloth diaper in reverse. I would probably use a seam sealant for more heavy duty rain gear but it held up to our torrential rains today.

You know, being seen from afar is rather a virtue for a raincoat, which you're presumably wearing on grey days. Consider it as built-in self-defense against aggressive or distracted drivers! The PowerShield recommended is only slightly stretchy, so no wonder the pattern works well for woven fabrics too. This fits you very well indeed.

We need to be seen from a mile away on a rainy day. This is just too cute.

Thanks for your kind comments. @Ndorfpins: would you believe that the pattern matching was entirely serendipitous? It probably wouldn't have worked out as well if I did it on purpose.

Wanting what we shouldn't have works fabulously sometimes. Especially if you end up with a masterpiece like this. Just beautiful!
