Hey y’all! Did you ever start a project and half way through realize it’s never going to work and scrap it? That’s what I did with the jacket before this y’all, so I can attest to the fact that sometimes throwing in the towel can be a good thing!
You see, I was asked to test E&E Patterns’ Spring Showers Jacket and for the life of me I could not find any rain coat material. The closest thing I could find was ripstop, which is the devil to work with. After putting together the outside of the jacket completely I decided life was too short to use ripstop (like, ever), so I went to an unconventional fabric source. Target.
I found myself in the shower curtain aisle, and found this amazing honey comb fabric. I knew it had to be mine. BONUS: it was only $15. With more than enough fabric for this project. It’s not waterproof, but more water resistant, so I sprayed the whole thing down with Scotchguard once I was done.
This pattern is great! It’s not a quick project, took me about 4.5 hours to complete, but sooo worth it. I absolutely love all the details of the jacket. The curved back hem, the top stitching, the visor, I just can’t get over how awesome it is. And most importantly Charlotte adores it!
So, I need you to immediately GO GET THIS PATTERN.
