    Going on a long trip to San Francisco, where light jacket / rain coat or windbreaker is a must, and discovered last minute that my favorite rain coat is missing. Took on a last minute project with this coat and am very pleased with the results! I had a cut of bone color gabardine from years and years ago, and some horn buttons that I just salvaged from an old jacket. Had to purchase good cord, but that was all that’s needed. I decided to forego the belt, since my waist is quite large, and hugging it with the belt would only emphasize this. The barrel shape is very flattering. it looks casual and goes with most of my wardrobe. The coat took me all day to put together (it included patching together the printed pattern and finishing all the seams with the sewing machine edge stitch). I typically enlarge the 52 size a little to accommodate my ample curves, but this time I used size 52, and it gave me plenty of room without any adjustments. The sleeves came a bit too long in this model, and pockets are placed pretty low, almost feels like it’s made for a taller person. Something to consider – a slightly different finishing strategy for the hood and neckline – in the end it was crazy amount of layers. Consider pressing darts on the hood in different directions to spread the thickness. There was no way to top stitch the neckline at 5 mm as suggested, due to insane number of layers, even when I trimmed and pruned everything, so I stitched around the lower edge of the facing instead, and it worked out very well. In hind sight, I’d probably add flaps to the pockets and finish them with the same loop and button closure.
