Description

I can’t wait for the festival season this summer and decided that I would make a cool outfit to wear. however, I remembered the famous British summer… RAIN!! Not to let the rain spoil my fabulous outfit, I decided to make a transparent raincoat! I bought the fabric online and used McCall’s raincoat pattern. The plastic was surprisingly easy to sew and I will definitely make some for my friends! I added duct tape to the seams and to hem it. I chose a neon pink tape and GLOW IN THE DARK tape as well!! I can’t wait to wear this to Leeds festival! sooo excited now!

      aw thank youx sewing the plastic wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be. the only real hard part is the sleeves! its hard to pleat the plastic and it all sticks together!

    I use to have one of these, I loved it, because you get to see the great outfit underneath.

      yep that’s whats great about it! I thought I didn’t want to make a cool outfit for a festival if I was only going to cover it up with a dull raincoat! only hope it isn’t too hot though! :p

    Very nice! I’m also thinking to make one! Do you need a special kind of plastic/fabric? Where did you found yours?

    Would you recommend the pattern? I was seriously thinking about giving this a try. I live in Newfoundland Canada and we too usually have the same type of weather during festival season. Great work!

      Aw thank ux the pattern is M6517. I used the pattern with a hood and lined the hood with another fabric so my hair won’t go all static when I put it up :)
