Treadlette Tuesday: Sue's Raincoat

Rainwear isn't always something we sew for ourselves, but Treadlette Sue has shown us just how fabulous it can be! She made this cute, practical rain jacket using a laminated fabric and Vogue 1564.

Brass hardware really pops and adds a feeling of structure.

The brass clasps close the front, along with this self-fabric tie belt.

The pattern is from Sandra Betzina for Vogue.

She used pink snaps instead of buttons along the front band.

The pocket construction is clever - hidden in the waist seam!
