I have been hoping for a rainy day so I could wear my new rain coat. I LOVE this coat. It is so fun and I adore the piping. Actually I adore all piping. As annoying as it can be to sew, it is so worth it. I used Simplicity 2508, which doesn't call for piping so I just added it to each seam I wanted to pipe. This coat was a lot of work but so worth it!
We went to the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, the Air and Space Museum and the Native American museum today, so we were outside a lot and I appreciated having my rain coat. I used the yellow lining fabric to create the piping, so it matches perfectly. The lining (and piping) is an almost neon yellow. I think I might add a belt. We'll see.
