Wind and waterproof, ready for the rain

Rainwear is practical when it's raining, but the fact is, it can be challenging to find rainwear with a good fit. The legs are too long, the sleeves too wide, and that small pocket for the key is missing. You can solve this by designing and sewing your own rainwear!

Choose, for instance, this exquisite rainwear quality, which is soft, fabric-like and sporty in its expression. It has a membrane on the back, making it perfect for all weather conditions – and suitable for both children and adults.

The quality is wind and waterproof with a water column pressure of 7,000 mm and good breathability of 3,000 mm.

Sew smart rainwear

This material is naturally suited for classic rainwear that you can adjust to your exact size. However, the fabric-like surface also makes it especially suitable for a neat waterproof coat or perhaps an all-in-one suit with a tie belt at the waist?

Alternatively, you can use this fabric as the backside for a picnic blanket, ensuring everyone sits dry and comfortable – even if it's rained in the past few days or the dew has set in.

Keep your project waterproof by using the right seams: Search for "seam tape for rainwear fabric" and find a free guide.

About water column pressure

Water column pressure indicates the height of a water column the material can withstand before water begins to penetrate. The higher the water column pressure, the more waterproof. A good rule of thumb is that +2,000 mm is suitable for light rain showers/short trips in the rain, while +5,000 is for a heavier rain shower or a few hours in light rain. If you're out in heavy rain, we recommend +8,000 mm.

Some practical details

This fabric consists of 100% polyester and measures 140 cm in width, and you, of course, choose the length you need for your DIY project.

We recommend using a universal needle size 70.
