Notes Raincoat from spring to autumn. Very light and breathable material. Weight 47 g/m2, water column > 9000 mm. I made the jacket a little more A-shaped and the hem can be tightened if necessary. The sleeve cuffs were unnecessary in this jacket. I didn't want to sew too many water-permeable holes in the fabric.
Very annoying to have to stay in place because of the slipperiness to get the edges to stay in place when pinning. The most challenging part of the seams was taping them. The fabric was very lively but without it the jacket is not waterproof. The fabric is very lively and doesn't want to stay put.
The lining is also a light, flexible mesh-like fabric. The zipper is water resistant. All in all, though, I'm happy with the end result. The purpose is to make pants from the same fabric - Oh my!
