Now that PRP is over, I went back to my list of projects that need to be done. First on the list was to make a lightweight rain coat for Abi. I had bought the water resistant fabric back in VA (le Fabriques) but had not yet made the coat because it really is a spring/summer fabric.

I used an Ottobre pattern from the summer 2007 magazine and as always with ottobre, there are some nice details.  My welt pockets turned out a bit puckery, but all in all it is pretty cute. You cant see very well in these pictures (but feel free to check out my Flicker page), but I top stitched in the same blue as the zipper.

Another fun fact is that I used this same fabric as a trim for a rain coat I made for me a little over a year ago. And I used the scraps of my lining fabric to line her hood and pockets. So, now we will coordinate in the rain.
