She was heading back to college and packing her things. She needed a raincoat and was all set to buy one when I showed her the jacket our neighbor had given us. It is a pretty gunmetal grey, tailored, with a belt. But, like most rain jackets, doesn’t have a hood.
I had some grey quilting cotton to use for the lining.
Working with a laminated cotton can be a little challenging. It’s best to use a Teflon or roller foot. I pulled out my Butterick 3664 pattern, which is apparently a vintage pattern. The link is to an Etsy shop that is currently selling the pattern.
A fun project and a nice little birthday present, too. Practical and pretty!
