Here on the wet West Coast of British Columbia, Canada we get a lot of rain. Like… a LOT. I feel like there is a rainfall warning at least once a week. At least during the winter months anyway… I wanted a nice, somewhat dressy waterproof jacket that I could wear during the monsoon weather here in Squamish.
I used the fabulous Minoru pattern by Sewaholic Patterns before to make a fun 3-season (aka dry weather) jacket. My first Minoru fit quite well, so I’m not really sure what happened when I attempted the pattern for the second time.
It looks nice and all, but is sooooo tight on the arms! I can hardly move my arms forward, so it makes driving difficult, not to mention picking up the Little Miss. I’m horribly disappointed as I wanted this to be my go-to jacket for the rainy months. The classic styling can easily be dressed up or down and always looks chic. I even saved my fancy Fendi lining fabric to line the jacket (ok a bit of a label whore I guess).
It’s not so terrible that I will never wear it. In fact, I’ve been wearing it lots lately. It just doesn’t live up to what I had envisioned…. le sigh…
For some reason Nova thought the zipper pull tasted good, hahaha!
N took several mother-daughter photos of us at Shannon Falls Provincial Park near Squamish the other weekend. I love them!
