Over the last two weeks I have been making a toile of  a raincoat out of thick clear plastic completed with a ¼ inch black bias binding. Making this jacket became a miniature challenge as  the plastic was a hard to work with. I had to hand sew the pieces of the pattern together as they would often get slide whilst putting the plastic through the sewing machine if they was not tacked. The plastic was also hard to put pins into as it would often rip so it was difficult to cover the edges with bias binding. Overall I am extremely happy with my raincoat toile and the way that it looks
