Vinyl Singing in the Rain

This is a super cute raincoat and hat. I have been sewing a good portion of my 73 years and would not rate this as confident beginner if you are using vinyl over fabric as instructed. It made the fabric pretty stiff. I found this hard to manipulate - but not impossible - especially the hat. Using a pen I traced the pattern onto the fabric as close as possible. Then I was able to cover all pattern pieces with vinyl and didn't need to buy more. I made the mistake of using a fabric adhesive ( I guess its different than fabric glue) which, when dried, left wet marks on the pockets. Had to cut out new pockets. I found that using Quitters Tape or Wonder Tape worked better for me. I used Wonder Tape in the seams and sewed thru it. When making the cape match it up with the shoulders of the back section before sewing the cape. You want the pleat to be the right size to lie flat onto the back. Topstitching is difficult but helps everything lie flat if you are using the vinyl. The hat was very tough to sew using the vinyl because of it not being pliable. I hand basted it first and it helped a bit. The coat turned out nice but I wanted to make 4 coats for 4 granddaughters. Wish I could find an easier fabric that would still look like a raincoat.

Lovely design, fairly easy

Although a reasonably experience seamstress, working with this (recycled) fabric was a little challenging! The sleeves needed some ‘easing’ but happy enough with the results. Granddaughter was over the moon!

Very good pattern. For the Maple Léa doll, I removed the seams on each side of the sleeve as well as on each side of the garment. I added the 1/2 inch to the sleeve. The rest of the pattern is perfect. Maple Léa is thinner than American Girl.
