Let's create some practical and fun wet weather clothing together.
We'll walk you through the fabric options, including natural and upcycled options, choosing the right size and making fit adjustments, and the process of sewing with waterproof fabrics.
Though sewing with waterproof materials may seem daunting, we believe that these patterns are an accessible sew for everyone willing to give it a go and that you can be proud of your achievements as you enjoy the great outdoors in fantastic rain clothes that you’ve made.
