5and10 designs raincoats (and giveaway!)

5and10 designs raincoats!

I’m hoping that making these raincoats won’t jinx California’s chance at some good rain showers this winter!

We really need it. It was sprinkling while we took these pics, so I’ll take that as a good sign.

Cross my fingers!

5and10 designs raincoats!

Cute little gals!

5and10 designs raincoats!

Charlotte has a raincoat that my best friend thrifted for us (pictured below), but the other two didn’t have one.

Since the 5&10 Designs basic coat is PERFECT for a raincoat, I knew I had to remedy that!

First I picked out some laminated cotton fabric (from this etsy shop)

Sadie’s coat (more like an oilcloth than other laminated cottons I’ve worked with)

Ava’s coat (thinner, more like traditional laminated cotton)

both worked well, but Sadie’s is much stiffer.

Both are lined in flannel for some coziness!

I could eat her up! Those cheeks! Anyways, for Ava’s I made a size 2, which fits great! (I did end up shortening the sleeves to fit her arm length, still a little long for her to grow into)

I bought a yard of this fabric and BARELY had any left, lol.

The “pockets” are fakeroo-I used my last scraps to make the flaps!

Ava was a little sad when she couldn’t put her hands in her pockets like Sadie.

(not a dirty lens. it really was raining!)

5and10 designs raincoats!

For Sadie’s I had bought 2 yards (with plenty leftover), and so I added some pockets with cute bias tape on the top!

I love LOVE the fit! (a little pat on mine and Heidi‘s back since we did the patternΒ  and digitizing, lol)

and seriously, Delia did such a great job with this look-everything is spot on!

I made Sadie’s first so it took longer, but Ava’s only took probably 2 hours because I had already sewn it up once.

I really enjoy a good sewing challenge like this one sometimes!

5and10 designs raincoats!

So Liberty-esque, right? I LOVE it.

(update: both are gone!!)

Charlotte was happy to get in on some of the pics!

She loves wearing her polka dotted raincoat!

Can you tell I picked the fabrics out so that they would all coordinate? ha. I’m a little crazy like that.

Also make sure to hop over to Delia‘s & Stef‘s blog to see their adorable raincoats!



  1. Seriously so so cute!!! Their faces are just so adorable too. Love the fabric combos you picked and they look like such professionally made coats! On a side note, I realized the feed in feedly that I had for your blog was broken and I had been missing your posts! πŸ™ wah!

  2. OMG! your raincoats are sooo lovely! And it looks like this pattern is really great!

  3. The whole time I was looking at this post, I kept saying, “That looks like liberty… I wonder if it is liberty” *gets really close to the screen* “Looks like the print that I have” and then you said “liberty-like.” It sure it! It tricked me πŸ˜‰

    These are perfect!! I love the matching family!!

  4. And I forgot to write which one I would sew first. Either #3 or #8 (which I have mentioned before is my favorite of all the views)

  5. I love your rain jackets! They are adorable.

  6. I love look 8 – the double breasted coat is so cute!

  7. I love Look 1- so simple and the perfect raincoat— and perfect for both my little girl and my little guy! Thanks for the chance to win!

  8. Whitney Luckenbill says

    i would make a swing coat and a raincoat definitely with this pattern bundle!

  9. These are adorable!

  10. Maria Conway says

    I have to choose one!!? Imposible! lol
    I love looks 1, 3, 8 and 10 not sure what I’d make first..

  11. Ooooh! I would love to win your fabulous designs!
    Color-coordinating between kids is an awesome idea. Will definitely keep that in mind for future coat-projects. πŸ™‚

  12. Look No. 10 – gorgeous!

  13. Cutest raincoats ever! My daughter would love it if I made her one!

  14. Those are the cutest rain coats!! I would love to win and E-book and make one for my 2 year old!

  15. Since my two oldest are boys, I’d make look 4 first! πŸ™‚

  16. I’d definitely go for look no.1/raincoat first. Our oldest desperately needs a raincoat. And since it’s been so dry this fall so far, I didn’t realize it until this morning when we left for school. And it was raining. I can imagine the different fabrics that could be so fun to create this with!

  17. I LOVE the little grey cargo jacket with the hoodie. I have three boys so I don’t think I’ll be sewing too many gorgeous rain coats like these but I love how versatile the pattern is!

  18. I like look 3 but you are seriously tempting me towards a raincoat instead, these are gorgeous!

  19. I’d make a raincoat similar to this — we live where it rains all the time! πŸ™‚

  20. They’re adorable.
    I like look 8 for now and 3 for when she gets bigger, plus look 1 for the Wee Man for next year. Really I love them all and could see the kids ending up with a large numbers of coats.

  21. So cute! Rain coats have been on my todo list forever.

  22. I love all of these – I’m a co-ordinating junki too and bravo on your fabric picks – they are gorgeous….I’d love a raincoat for myself made from the material you used for Sadie’s raincoat

  23. Such cute jackets!

  24. I forgot to write which one I’d sew first and I think it would be between look 3 and 8 as we are just coming into the winter in the UK so the raincoat will have to wait until April/May

  25. Gail McMurray says

    These jackets are so cute, I don’t think I can sew good enough to make them though. lol

  26. I would sew the basic jacket first.

  27. I love the cardigan you made! I want to make a bunch for my little miss!

  28. These are amazing!!!! I wish I could sew well enough to make a rain coat for my little that would turn out half as well! Thanks for sharing the lovely pics!

  29. These raincoats are just adorable and I want to make one for my little grandBOY too!

  30. Love looks 1, 4, 7, and 10!! I really love the raincoat. I would love to make two of them for my grandchildren. Thanks for the giveaway!

  31. Lou Ann Rice says

    The yellow raincoat is where I would start.

  32. Adorable, love the fabric choices, I’m loving pastels at the moment too:) This looks like a great pattern, thanks for sharing.

  33. I would make looks 1 or 4.

  34. Lovely raincoats and fantastic fabric choice.

  35. You seriously have the cutest kids! Great job on the coats!

  36. I love jackets, and I want to force my daughter to also love them! haha

  37. I love the raincoats! But my favorite is look 3 – the double breasted peacoat. I love peacoats!

  38. Niki Paetz says

    I think raincoats would be a fun and practical Christmas gifts for my girls!

  39. DeniseMarie says

    So adorable! I have a couple nieces around those same ages who would love Aunt Dee to make them some raincoats, but I might go with the vest first – I love it!

  40. All the raincoats are adorable!

  41. Love it. My favorite is view 1.

  42. Love your fabric choices.
    I’d make look 10 closely followed by 2 and 7.

  43. I like looks 1 & 3. Thanks for the giveaway.

  44. I’d sew up several of the shawl collar tie cardigan style coats. You did a great job with those!

  45. arg stop with these two! adorable. that fabric of sadie’s totally looks like liberty! hmmmm maybe she and Em should match. πŸ˜‰

  46. Falling head over heels with look no. 3…

  47. I am a big fan of the five and ten designs. I have volume one and it is my first stop when sewing for girls. I am so excited you have released a new collection! I would love to sew a raincoat but I am a bit scared to sew with laminated fabrics or oilcloth, mostly from fear of my sewing mistakes leaving holes in the fabric. I will try it one day… In the meantime I think I would start with look no. 8 for my daughter and look no. 4 for my son.

  48. Lovely designs! I would begin with # 2. Love the style! Thank you for the chance to win.

  49. Jessica Henderson says

    Love the fabric on both of these!

  50. Jessica Henderson says

    Of all the designs in volume two, I think I would have to sew number 5 first (then maybe nine). It is so rare to find boys’ clothing patterns I actually like!

  51. I adore the rain coats. I love the cardigan you designed too.

  52. Oh I love these raincoats!!! Great fabric choices too! I’m definitely going to be visiting the easy shop you bought them at. Thanks for referencing! If I win the 5 & 10, i would start with either the #4 for my son or skip right to a raincoat for my daughter. But oooooohhhh the fun I could have with the others too!!!!

  53. Brenda Melahn says

    First definitely Look #4 — then the raincoats … yours look awesome!

  54. So cute!! We live in the nw….I really want to make one for my 2 year old!

  55. I love that floral print! I need to get better at sewing clothing! Adorable!

  56. So cute!! Your girls are adorable! I would probably sew the raincoat for my littlest sister. I think it would look really cute on her.

  57. So cute! I should make my 3 yo a raincoat for spring. Her current coat is a 12 mos. size which definitely won’t fit in spring!

  58. Love these-especially that floral!

  59. I would totally make Look 5 for my girls. They all look like great jackets. Would love to win!

  60. I really want to try to make raincoats for my two little girls. These are adorable! Thanks for the opportunity!

  61. Torrie Gass says

    All of them are amazing, and you have THE best taste in fabric choices! Seriously. Whenever I see a new post I’m always drooling over the fabric patterns. And taking notes for when I order fabric next πŸ˜‰

    I think I would give Look No. 2 a shot first. My 2 year old doesn’t have any cardigans, so I would love to add one in for her. Maybe in a floral with striped accents?!

  62. Those little girls are the cutest sweeties ever!!!
    I love the little front-tied jacket in black and white stripe. It looks so comfy and could be worn casually or dressed-up.

  63. How stinkin cute!!! Your girls are adorable! The fabrics are awesome, and I love the variety of the Five & Ten patterns. These would be great to add to my pattern stash.

  64. I’d make the swing coat. So adorable!!!

  65. #1, 7 and 10, I love!! and i coordinate my 3 girls’ clothes i make most of the time too πŸ™‚

  66. Adorable!! I’d love to sew a couple of these up too!

  67. Erin Yatsui says

    Those rain coats are adorable!!! I would love a copy of the pattern so I could make my two girls rain coats!!

  68. I’d love to make the zipper jacket or the sporty jacket for my little girls. So cute!

  69. Tonia Jeffery says

    I love look number 8, the swing coat.

  70. These are adorable. Would like to make one for my daughter and son for next spring!

  71. I love Look # 5. The double row of buttons and the length which means it is such a versitile piece

  72. I’d love to make raincoats for my girls!

  73. I’d sew version 1 first!

  74. #2 looks great–I would try this one first.

  75. Wow, gorgeous coats! I LOVE the fabric used!

  76. This raincoat times 3 for each of my daughters. SW Colorado has been so rainy!

  77. These are adorable raincoats! I have just discovered the 5and10 designs and I love the concept! I hope to get both volumes soon. I am really excited about Vol 2 though since most will work for boys and girls, I have a son 3 and a daughter 19 months. I think I would start with #4 πŸ™‚

  78. Oh Gosh!! No fair making us pick just one!! I like several but if I must pick one I will say No. 2 because I’ve admired that one before, or one like it. So many cute jackets and coats!! Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  79. Cathy Grande says

    My girls need raincoats so that would be priority. I also want to sew #10! I love that bomber jacket!

  80. Look No. 2 – I’m not kissing your butt…promise! It’s perfect for my 3 oldest girls.

  81. Alisa Chavez says

    Wow! Never thought of making a Rain Coat Before…& I have never used that type of material. Will have to try sometime!

  82. It will have to be a little raincoat for rainy England!

  83. Oh how lovely! This design IS perfect for raincoats πŸ™‚ I would love to have a go at making a rain coat too!

  84. Great jackets! I would try 1 or 4 first, followed by a few others! Thanks for the giveaway!

  85. All of these jackets are great so it’s quite difficult to choose just one. I would love to make No.1 and No.8 … to begin with!

  86. Oooh, that floral! I love it! I really like how you picked the fabrics to coordinate… I would totally do that too, if I could resist actually matching them. =)

  87. How is one to choose what jacket they’d sew first?!

  88. I’d make a raincoat for sure!

  89. Your girls are adorable!!! And their raincoats are stunning! I love the fabrics! You always choose such beautiful fabrics

  90. Adorable girls! I love look 8 – the double breasted coat is so cute and stylish! Thanks for the chance to win!

  91. Your girls are adorable!!! And their raincoats are stunning! I love the fabrics! You always choose such beautiful fabrics

    I love all of them, but I would like to try the cargo pockets jacket, can’t find wich number it is ^_^

  94. Your girls are adorable and the coats are so cute! I think I would sew raincoats too.

  103. Love #8. I’ve been looking in awe at all the ways people have made it their own!

  104. I would love to sew raincoats.

  105. darlene macdonald says

    I love the double breasted trench coat. So adorable to see one on a little person. Gorgeous coats you made & your models are sooo adorable! As always πŸ™‚

  106. I love them all! I think I would start with look numbers 1, 2, and 8 though. I would love to learn how to make coats for my kids.

  107. Love the raincoats! This makes me brave enough to try sewing a coat…

  108. I love how well the raincoats fit your girls and the hip length is a great idea. Thank you for providing a fabric source. It’s nice to see that there is a wide variety of prints available in laminate.

  109. Look 10 would get my vote. Sadly if it doesn’t pass the soft and comfy test my daughter isn’t wearing it.

  110. These are adorable! Thanks for the chance to win! It is time t throw together some nice rain coats for my munchkins and these are perfect! ✨

  111. I would love to win this.. I love that boys army look jacket!! so cute!

  112. Love look 4 and look 6– as an auntie to some nephews (and one niece who is still too small for optimum cute-clothes sewing) I am always looking for good things to sew for boys! Would love this book!

  113. I love the raincoats, especially the liberty-esque fabric!

  114. aprilshowers says

    I think I’d start with Look 1 as a raincoat. My eldest will have outgrown her oliver + s by next spring and that pattern only goes up to size 8 so I was psyched to see this one goes up to 10.

  115. It does look like liberty! Would love to sew one for my little:)

  116. These are just the cutest! I’d make no them for all of my nieces!! Love how they all coordinate!

  117. I have been eyeing that pattern set for a while – I love the different coat options that are great for both boys and girls. These raincoats are just adorable.

  118. Those are some of the prettiest raincoats I’ve ever seen!

  119. I want to make one just like Ava’s for a granddaughter who is coming soon!

  120. So cute!

  121. Charlene M. Haddad says

    I love the Volume 1 dresses patterns, and when I get Volume 2, I want to make the trench-style coat!

  122. These are adorable !!

  123. I love look #2 and not saying that just because it’s yours!

  124. Your girls are so sweet. And the coats are so beautiful. Here in Germany it is raining currently very much and my kids are always outside. I would also like them as sew a coat.
    love Greetings

  125. LOVE these coats! Adorable models! I’d love a chance to make some for my littles. Thanks for the giveaway.

  126. its too hard to choose just one! I love them all

  127. Love all these coats!! I’d do No.1 first as rain coats. πŸ™‚ Thanks for a chance to win!

  128. I would make a bunch of cardigans first! I have a 15 month old and I just love cardi’s on babies! Something about a baby wearing grown up looking clothes is just so cute. Love your cardigan pattern you made!

  129. Adorable! Would love to make these for my four little grandgirls. Thank you for the giveaway.

  130. I would make the raincoat or the shawl collar jacket. All so cute, though!! πŸ™‚

  131. I love love these!! I have a little girl that I want to make all the jackets for, but I would likely start with a winter coat as it is way to cold for a rain coat here now!

  132. Absolutely love these coats!

  133. Beautiful pictures of beautiful girls and their jackets! I would go for look No. 3

  134. I’d sew up nr 10 first. Nice and sporty

  135. I need to make time to conquer some sewing projects for my sweet littles!

  136. I have to agree with the swing coat. It is absolutely adorable!!!

  137. Def, I would make the boys some rain jackets! We live in the Midwest and it rains here all the time! Love this pattern!

  138. I would try look 2 first. Or 3. both so cute!

  139. so stinking cute!! I think I’d have to tackle a raincoat for sure πŸ™‚

  140. I’ll sure make raincoats in the future for my DD because…well, it might start raining one day!!!

  141. Chelsea Rodriguez says

    Love all of them, but I’d make the swing coat first!! Awesome job on the raincoats πŸ™‚

  142. Jess!!!!!!! your girls are simply the cutest.

  143. I think I’d make #3 first, but my girls could use some rain jackets too!

  144. JaNette Herndon says

    Adorable! #3 #5 #7 #8….love them!

  145. Love these soo much Jess!! Totally Liberty prints too, love them, and the girls look as squishy as ever in them. GREAT job. πŸ™‚

  146. I like look number 10 the best, but several of the designs were very cute!

    If I had to pick, I’d probably have to sew up looks #3 and #4 first.

  148. Oh my swoon! I think all of them would be on my to do. If I had to pick, I’d say 1,2,3, and 10. First:) My kiddos are 4 and 2, boy and girl so I see lots of variety and making in the future!

  157. P.S. : I can’t decide on which look I love most ! I would probably start with look nb 2.

  158. They are all great. I would probably start with Look 2 and Look 8.

  159. I think look 8 is just adorable. I would definitely sew that for our little girl. When she gets a bit older I would make look 10.

  160. I would make look #4 for my son and look #8 for my daughter.

  161. I love the raincoats! (I need to get braver about the things I sew…)

  162. Woah, pressed post too soon. If I could get brave, I would start off with look 3!

  163. Amber Smith says

    I always went puddle jumping as a kid and came home and had hot chocolate, it was the best. my son is old enough this year that I will be taking him and would love to make his raincoat.

  164. Given we’re moving into warmer weather I reckon I’d make look 2 or 10.

  165. I’d really love to try sewing any jacket, but I especially like number 3

  166. Ohhh…they’re so cute! Been looking for a coat pattern for my little one and these look perfect!! Thanks!

  167. I have a fabric that sit on my shelves for like 3 years … it would be amazing for look 3!

  168. oh these are absolutely adorable!! I would love to make my gorgeous nieces each a raincoat – and to be able to choose the fabric rather than be limited by the store options = endless possibilities!

  169. Maria Stove says

    Nice jackets! I would like to maken thema aswell!

  170. I have 2 littles that I would love to make for raincoats for. Those look fantastic!
