Some time back, we bought Coco a winter coat from Wal-Mart. It is pink, fits really well, and even has a hood. That means the winter coat can double up as a raincoat.
It finally occurred to me to use that as a template. Well, it was the husband’s idea actually. So I grabbed some paper, writing instrument, and started tracing the 4 individual pieces. Main body piece, 2 sleeves, 2 hood sides, and 1 hood middle.
I cut the pieces out of black corduroy, lining, and striped knit. All three fabrics are stretchy. Using zigzag stitches, sew the pieces together into 3 jackets. Layer the three and stitch all around the edges.
Then bind the edges with fold over elastic.
