I designed The Bailey Coat for my son going into his second winter in South Gippsland. He loves to play outside, and doesn’t let the rain stop him! With this raincoat, he stays warm and protected from the wind and rain. It can be made in a woollen fabric as a warm coat, or with a waterproof or semi-waterproof fabric as a raincoat.
Advice regarding sourcing and use of waterproof fabrics is included.
Of course, you can use this pattern to make a coat for your child in any fabric! Just ignore the instructions regarding water-proofing if this is the case.
If the cost of waterproof shell is a bit pricy, keep an eye out for adult-sized waterproof jackets in second-hand shops and recycle these into a children’s raincoat. You will probably need two jackets to source enough fabric. Also consider recycling the zip in these jackets. Combine colours but try to keep the weight of the fabric approximately the same.
No waterproofing experience required.

NOTE: This is not a final product. It is a digital pattern in PDF from, which will be available for printing immediately after purchase. It is formatted to print on A4 paper, but the margins are large enough that it will work in American letterhead size paper also- just make sure you print the test square page first.
