So what if it drizzles
And dribbles and drips?
I'll splash in the garden.
I'll dance on the roof.
Let it rain on my skin.
It can't get in -

While I focused primarily on making the shirt for Ana's nephew, I did squeeze in a little bit of sewing this weekend on the raincoat. :)
I was able to attach (or is it "insert"?) the lining!
It makes the whole thing feel so much more substantial!
Here is the coat turned inside out - you can see that it's a pretty nice fit:
The laminate facing was wider than the strip down the front, which sets you up for a nice finish along the bottom of the coat:
Obviously I still need to deal with the bottom hem.
I also need to do the hems in the lining of the sleeves:
I love the unusual animal choices on this fabric! "C" doesn't stand for "cat" on this raincoat...
Hopefully soon I will be able to show you a picture with a little boy inside! :)
