When I first posted about the Five and Ten Designs Volume Two Jacket E-book, I promised a rain coat…
I actually sewed it up before we moved, but finally snapped some pictures of Natalie wearing it last week, since the rainy fall/winter season has started to settle in here in the Pacific Northwest.
I sewed up the basic look from the jacket e-book just with different fabric.
It’s amazing how just by changing fabric, you can alter the look and feel of a pattern.
The raincoat fabric is laminate fabric from The Ribbon Retreat. I am sorry to say that they have discontinued carrying fabric though. I also have been hoarding it in my stash for quite some time, so I can’t for the life of me cannot remember who the designer is. I believe it is Riley Blake? You can get a similar print here.
The lining is fleece from Jo-Ann. Both fabrics were hard to sew together, but with a little (or a lot of) patience…totally doable.
Erin from My Family Four sewed up a rain coat using a table cloth. Not only is her rain coat fabulously adorable, but she describes sewing with laminate type fabrics perfectly. 😉
For the pockets, I sewed up simple rectangular ones that are lined with laminate fabric, so it would be totally waterproof on the outside. They are a little hard to see, because I pattern matched the dots. What, what! A little sewing camouflage for ya. 🙂
I also decided to use heavy duty snaps from Jo-Ann to make dressing easier. They are pricier than buttons, but I think they make a garment look and feel really professional.
For more rain coat inspiration , two of my fellow Five and Ten Designers are sharing super cute rain coat looks today as well AND we are each giving away a copy of Volume Two!! Check out Jess’s coats at Craftiness Is Not Optional and Stef’s look at Girl.Inspired.

Love this! I’d make the rain jacket first!
Love the fabric choice, this would look great on my daughter Natalie as well. ( Great name 😉 )
All of them look great! But the first one I would make would be look no.8
Amy Mayen says
I like the trench coat version! Thanks for the giveaway!
Julie R. says
I think I would make look number 4 first. I’m so happy that this collection includes patterns for boys, since I’ve got three of them! Thank you!
I love Natalie’s rain coat. You did such an amazing job!
I would make a zippered coat for my daughter. I’d use a brushed woven outer and a microfleece or flannel lining.
Liza A. says
Look Number 8 is just so classic and would look so super on my preschool age daughter, although many of the other “Looks” would certainly be made too!
Whitney Luckenbill says
My favorites are the basic jacket and the swing coat. My twins each need one!
I would probably make a basic jacket. My 7 year old never has jackets that reach her bum, let alone her wrists.
Angie O. says
LOVE this raincoat! I would probably make Look #4 for my son first, but I also have a daughter who would love a raincoat like yours so that would definitely be on the list next. Love the details and options!
Fräulein Rucksack says
I love yours the most. Love the simple yet effective dots. Fantastic.
Laura D says
Delia, I can’t see Jess’. It won’t allow it. Says something about a security issue. I loved how you matched the pattern on yours, though. And I adore Stef’s fabric choice. Hrm… I have some Kaufman laminated fabric in my stash…
Can’t wait until my little one is old enough to warrant these cute jackets!
I’d sew the shawl collar jacket first, for my almost-1 yr old.
Natalie is just the cutest thing! She looks adorable in her raincoat!
wow all of these are so amazing. my only question is when will these be made up in an adult size – practical and comfy.
I would sew up the second one first
Heather @ fit mama real food says
I am partial to dots and black and white so I love everything about yours
Alyssa P says
I would probably try look 4. But I must admit, the thought of making a fully lined jacket is a little intimidating…
I’m dying to try a raincoat now after first seeing Erin’s and now all of these – I love that this basic pattern is so versatile! I love your classic black and white choice – looks amazing!
Mo Parrow says
I love the Natalie’s coat but I really like the fact that they can all be altered to suit the person you are making it for. Thank you.
Maegen Foster says
This is darling! I bet the fleece lining makes it super cozy. I also have some laminate I’ve been hoarding and it would make a darling raincoat.
I would start with look nr 1. I especially like the striped version in the lookbook!
I would make this version of a raincoat for my daughter. I love it! I love all of them!!!
I love the idea of a raincoat lined with flannel!
Chelsi Biehl says
I love the polk-a-dots! I can’t get enough of them on my girls. I love this rain coat!
Chelsi Biehl says
Also, I would make either look number 3 or look number 8! I love the double breasted look on little kids!!!
Bess Bauer says
I think I would start with 4 and then get brave and try #1. Such cute raincoats.
I would start with 2,3, or 6.. I mean how can you choose just one!?!? All super fab looks!
Hayely P says
Definitely #4, that is one cool jacket! And I’m so happy this collection is unisex since all I have to sew for our boys!
donna wilson says
I would go with #1 first then #9. They are oldies but goodies.
Adriana Bon says
This is SO CUTE! I would make number 4 first. One for each one of my nieces and one for my nephew. They all live in rainy places just like I do (I’m also in the Pacific Northwest). You can’t ever have too many rain anything here!
Sara Speight says
I would make a basic raincoat just like this one. We are heading into a Southern Hemisphere summer so don’t have much need for warmth but we still get rain! Really like the versatility of your black and white raincoat Natalie.
Jess Z says
I love Look 2 for my daughter! Definitely would make that first.
Melanie S. says
I think I’d start with No. 6 as my little girl needs some new cardigans. But she’d definitely get a new raincoat No. 4 style, too! I think I spotted some adorable dark blue laminated fabric with white polka dots at my local fabric store… 😉
You really did a great job on Natalie’s raincoat!
I love look#4, so professional looking!
jessica w says
I Would sew the shawl cowl jacket first for my niece
Look 1 for sure! adorable!
I love look 3, would love to make it for one of my girls, or even both!
I love the rain coat and would love to try sewing with laminate.
Kelly T. says
I think my favorite is look #4. 🙂
Jen @ Eat. Sleep. Make. says
they’re all adorable, but I’d make look #2 or 5 first!
I LOVE the bold polka dots! So cute! I would definitely make the basic jacket first for my son but with a zipper. He’s finally outgrown nearly all of his store-bought stuff and will be needing a new jacket soon! 🙂
Love the look n| 10!!
It would be hard to decide which look to sew first, because they are all so cute! I would probably pick looks 3 or 5.
Maria Conway says
I have to choose one!!? Imposible! lol
I love looks 1, 3, 8 and 10 not sure what I’d make first..
A basic jacket for me.. since I am new at this..
I love looks 4 and 6. We just moved from the desert and are getting used to Autumn actually being cold- my kids need lots and lots of new jackets/coats!!
number 3!!!! Love that. thanks for the giveaway!
Shannon P says
I love look number 2 with the shawl collar!
I love them all!! But I think I would start with number two, as that one is adorable and doesn’t look too difficult 🙂
Sharon J. says
My kids could definitely use some raincoats!
I would do the basic. So much could be done with it. Love the dots!! PUL also makes great raincoat fabric and diapersewingsupplies.com has the easiest pul to sew with!
I think I would make #3 first. I love it!
I like look #5 best, the zipper jacket. The other girl coats are cute too, but I only have 2 boys. 🙂
Jacket 4? So hard to choose!
I would make looks 1 or 4.
I think I’d start with number 1, then maybe a 3, then perhaps a 4… I’d have to try them all!
I love the polka dots. Look 1 is by favorite. Such a basic classic. I would love this pattern for my three girlies.
I adore the classic black and white polka dots!
I’d sew the little sporty jacket with the ribbed collar and cuffs first
and I love the paris raincoat… I’m a sucker for Paris… what can I say?
I love the rain coat. So fun.
I would have to make the raincoat option first since my two little girls don’t have one. CINO’s inspired me because her girls remind me of my own and I can just picture mine wearing them too!
My daughter desperately needs both a raincoat and a new winter coat. I think I would get my feet wet with the simple jacket pattern first. Though, honestly I want to make them all.
Kelly M says
I like the look of number 8. but I also love the idea of making a rain coat. super fun!
Nor Rofishah Rusli says
Raincoat will be perfect for my child in this rainy day season. I wish to make them
Lots of goodies! I really like that first white wool one! What a fun collar treatment!
I have a coat of mine with a few small holes that I’d love to repurpose into a little girl’s coat. Look 8 would be ideal!
I’d start with the rain jacket. It’s such a great wardrobe staple for kids!
Courtney Kelley says
I’d start with either no.1 or no.5. But probably no.1 because I could use it for both of my kiddos!
Rachel E says
This looks like an awesome pattern.
I can’t decide! 2, 3, or 8!
Look No. 2 is what I would sew up first. It would be perfect for my 3 oldest girls (ages 10, 8, and 4).
I love them all, but No 4 is my choice for my grandson:)
That’s adorable! Nice matching job on the pockets. And ooh, a fleece lining sounds so cozy!
Mary S says
What a perfect little raincoat!
So so cute i share your love of black and white. And where did u get Natalies boots they are sooooo cute. I would wear them myself!!!
OH my goodness these are all adorable! I would have to go with #2 or #3 first! My daughters Natalie Hailey and Bentley would be the most styling little ones in their classes!
Darlene P. says
The raincoat you made is lovely!! The pattern package is wonderful having so many choices. It truly covers any outerwear you could want. My favorite ones are 2 and 7. Thanks so much for hosting this giveaway!!! And compliments to Jess and Stef! Their coats are adorable too!
Another predictably cute project! I love the details on Natalie’s coat!
I like them all but the Parisian style fabric is so cute!
Jenni S. says

Soooo cute. Was just thinking my daughter needed a rain coat, much more fun to just make one! Love the polka dots 🙂
I love the gray boys coat. The pop of yellow, and all the pockets. LOVE!
Shannon S says
So cute. Would love to make it!
Erin Keith says
I love it!! And yes, I noticed the pattern matching on those pockets right away too, bravo!! Thanks for the shout out too. Glad/ sorry to know that sewing with laminate is so similar to table cloth, but the end justifies the means sometimes, right? Whew! 🙂
Totally! Thanks Erin!
I love all the jackets, i can’t choose. Thanks for the inspiration!
Heather Crook says
I love all of them! My girls would need more than one each!
Sarah S says
Love me the trench coat.
Jess Abbott says
DELIA! those polka dots KILL ME. Seriously, I am so in love with your style. Can I be you when I grow up!?!
I like them all, but the basic is my favorite. If I don’t win, then I’ll just have to buy them, because I really do like them all
Sara Nelson says
Id make the raincoat first it is so cute!
Dawn Kindley says
I think I’d do the tan polka dot, simply because it looks like something I might be able to do.
Oh my goodness love them all… All so cute.
Jennifer H. says
So cute! Love the polka dots!
Cat B says
We are moving to England, I’d sew the raincoat!
Emily A. says
I love these jackets. Look 1 & 4 are my favorites.
It doesn’t get too cold here so I would definitely sew up a raincoat! Love all the raincoats I’ve been seeing from this pattern. Thanks for the chance to win.
I would make a swing coat (#8) for all my girls.
I just LOVE this raincoat, Delia! I love all the looks, but look 4 is my fave!
