What advice would you give someone starting this project? You will be able to find this pattern in quilting stores, but I don't think it is available on her web-site anymore. You want to look the pattern over very good and compare it with other patterns that fit as the sleeves are very fitted. I guess I cannot imagine why there is a need for a "fitted" rain jacket. Slim sleeves just don't make sense to me. I used expensive fabric so ended up adding strips under the arm and down the side of the jacket to make them large enough.

you have my deepest sympathy, there's nothing worse than a pattern that doesnt fit like it should, kudos on the finished product, which looks great, thanks to your adjustments-i've sewn clothes for years and cant imagine a fitted sleeve on a raincoat, congrats on a wonderful job inspite of the pattern!!

Yes, sometimes sewing clothes requires ingenuity to solve problems (which I feel like is sewing anything in a nutshell.) I LOVE that fabric though! The jacket looks adorable on you.

Hi, THey are very beautiful! Where did you find this kind of fabric? Are they waterproof and breathable. Are the instructions good in the pattern?
