DIY YOUR OUTERWEAR!
Make your own playful and practical raincoat or cosy duffle to shelter from the elements. Fully lined, Eden has raglan sleeves and thoughtful details like a high neck hood to keep out the wind, practical pockets and a hanging loop.
Choose from hip or long lengths, snaps or toggle fastenings with optional zip, two pocket styles and optional storm flaps. Whether on a weekend walk, at a festival or doing the school run, you can wear your DIY outerwear with pride!
Eden includes jargon-busting instructions, helpful sewing tips, and colour photos showing you each step – making it easy for you to create gorgeous clothes you can be proud to say you made yourself.
If you fancy getting all the bits you need to make an Eden raincoat, why not grab one of our kits? We have sourced specialist water-resistant fabric, super soft cotton jersey for the lining, and high-quality notions, so you don't have to source all the bits yourself! Everything is packaged in a lovely TATB project bag so you can keep everything neat and tidy!
PRINTED PATTERN - You’ll receive a gorgeous printed package in the post containing full-scale pattern sheets and a colour instruction booklet. (Alternatively, you can order the digital version to print and assemble at home, or have the A0 format printed at a copy shop.)
