Nova Scotia Raincoat

I have a trip coming up, to visit my Dad in Nova Scotia. I found last time that I was missing an all weather jacket, something for the mist and drizzle that often bookends lovely sunny days. This is a McCalls trench coat pattern, and I used a water resistant fabric with a silky lining. I made the shortest length, perfect for in and out of cars. There are 12 buttons and button holes!

Ruth may recognise the top and skirts under the coat... yes they are almost done!

Here's me with the trendy cotton scarf... ready to travel!
