Sometimes getting caught in the rain can be fun, especially in the summer when you are out walking with your little ones. Here at Sew Now HQ we have compiled a collection of rain Mac patterns for adults and kids to help take you through those unpredictable UK summer months in style.
The first find is a versatile jacket pattern called the Waver jacket by Paper Patterns in New Zealand. Over on the Kollabora blog you can see loads of different ideas and upcycling hacks of the Waver pattern. This rain Mac caught our eye in particular and was made by sewist Tante Karlo
Next we have a cute little unisex Mac for children from the fabulous pattern brand called Oliver+S. We especially love the duffle toggle design detail and lined hood. You can even add a removable quilted lining for extra warmth!
We absolutely love this little jacket made from a waterproof-coated tablecloth fabric! This was made by sewing blogger Erin Always and we recommend you have a read of her handy hints and tips before you get started, especially if you’re not used to sewing with oilcloth. The pattern is from Delia Creates – and it includes 10 essential jacket patterns in one for approx. £20.
For gorgeous, warm rainy summer days we love this Burda Style pattern rain cape. There is a pattern for both adults and kids in the dockside collection. There are even some cute co-ordinating rain pants that you can make to go with it!
If you prefer a belted version, this McCall’s pattern is a brilliant choice. Plus – how cool does a transparent Mac look?
First things first though, you’ll need to find some waterproof fabric. For an enormous selection of both solids and prints, check out the selection available at UK Fabrics Online
You could make your jacket in a cute spot, floral or even a camouflage print.
Don’t forget, we’d love to see your latest projects from Sew Now or what you’re sewing at the minute.
