Rain wear

As it cools down and chilly rainy days increase it gets handier and handier to have something waterproof or hooded. Raincoat or Rain jacket sewing patterns can keep you dry this chilly season.

I’ve rounded up a few options, and some places to shop appropriate fabrics in NZ, but let me know if I’ve missed some!

Sirkka Hooded Jacket

The Sirkka from Named Clothing is a light, unlined jacket with a detachable hood, long sleeves, and a zipper closure. The jacket features a high collar and large patch pockets with a side pocket and another pocket underneath the flap. The top half of the zipper is covered with a zipper shield with snap button closure. The overlapping pocket flaps with snaps create a fun little detail. The hood, hemline and cuffs are gathered with elastic cords. All seams of the jacket are sewn using flat-felled seams for a neat and durable finish.

Eden Coat

The Eden Coat from Tilly and The Buttons almost made it into my recent Stormflaps post, but I popped it in here instead.

Fully lined, Eden has raglan sleeves and a high neck hood to keep out the wind, practical pockets and a hanging loop.

Choose from hip or long lengths, snaps or toggle fastenings with optional zip, two pocket styles and optional storm flaps
