DIY Light Raincoat | Made from Scratch

Last week I made a summer dress, this week I’m teaching you how to make your own light-weight raincoat/jacket! My videos are as bipolar as the weather here in California lol. I never know how to dress when it rains, so I designed something I can just throw over my clothes and instantly look cute. Hope you enjoy!

TIME: 1 DAY (12 hours)

4 Yards Fabric of choice
–Waterproof if its a raincoat
–More or less fabric depending on size
28 Inch zipper
1 yard black lining

Pattern Making book (where I use the circle skirt chart)
