This anorak sewing pattern has me singing in the rain ?… and everywhere else! The Andie Anorak is so much more than just a rain coat; with all the different options available the possibilities are endless.

This pattern is a modern take on a traditional classic, and something every wardrobe needs! Come rain or shine, the Andie Anorak has you and your kidlet covered.

Options – Detachable hood, two lengths (jacket and coat), patch pockets, epaulettes, and sleeve buckles.
Ideas – Use a fabric such as PUL, nylon, goretex, softshell, or ripstop and an all-weather sealant to create 100% waterproof garment.
Fabrics – The Andie Anorak can be made from nearly any medium-weight woven fabric with a bit of structure such as tweed, denim, and heavy cotton.

If you use a fabric with a print or nap such as velvet, remember to cut all pieces in the same direction and to allow extra fabric for this.
