I finished my raincoat just in time for the fall, rainy season!This coat fits perfectly and I love everything about it! It's another Amy Butler pattern. The exterior is a laminated fabric from Michael Miller and the inside is a cotton from Portage Quilt House. I made the size small, short length, with the pleated pocket option.
This hood is so perfect and big.
Here's the pocket--it's big, which is great because I use every inch of my pockets sometimes!
And the back side:
Check out my super awesome pink floral lining!!!! Thinking back now, I may have made an inside pocket if I had thought about it...ah well!
I love that there is even a hook to hang the coat. I'm worried that it's a bit small for the weight of the coat-we'll see if it falls off.
I did the pleated pocket option instead of the gathered pocket because it was a little bit bigger:
I was really dreading these buttons..I've never covered my own buttons before and didn't realize how EASY it is!!! And they match perfectly. :)
The inside has smaller buttons to help stabilize the bigger exterior buttons.
The only modification I made was that I made belt loops out of the exterior fabric instead of thread loops. I just couldn't understand after putting in so much effort into the coat why anyone would want thread loops????!!! Also, I tacked the back of the belt down so it wouldn't fall off.
