I loved this umbrella – it was huge and rainbow striped, but it broke (as it seems all umbrellas must do).
I thought about making a skirt with the fabric but I actually don’t have a waterproof jacket so I decided to make a rain poncho.
The result is completely bonkers and I’m not sure I’d have the confidence to wear it out but I’d definitely wear it to a festival. And If I had another go I’d try to be a bit more precise (I cut the head hole far too low).
