I LOVE that fabric! It's so cheerful! I am amazed at all those alterations--I wouldn't know how to do 1/4 of those! I'm so inspired to learn!

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

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.

What need a cute hat to go with your adorable raincoat. Raindrops on roses!

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

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.

I just love it!! Once I get mine made, we will have to meet -- imagine the stares!!!! You did a very nice job. I am impressed with the adjustments you made.

@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.

Cool coat. How did you seal the seam?

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.
