Over the last couple of years I’ve have been busy writing sewing projects for magazines, in particular Sewing World magazine. While updating my website I thought I would add a small list of them to my ‘about’ page. However when the list reached 17 I decided it was maybe a bit to long to add as a list!
Instead I am going to publish them as blog posts. Starting with this, one of my recent ones. A child’s laminated cotton raincoat. The fabric was sponsored by Dashwood Studios. I love this print, I think it was the perfect choice for a little kids raincoat.
Technically this works as a reversible jacket, obviously it wouldn’t be comfortable to wear a laminated cotton coat with the laminate against your skin, but it could be made as a lightweight summer coat in double sided cotton or in fleece on one side and cotton the other.
There are always lots of ideas and versions you could do. If you feel inspired to make one I would love to hear how you get on. If you would like some extra help at one of my classes I would love to help you make it.
