Get your raincoats here!

NOTE (added November 2012): I am no longer doing custom raincoats. I will leave this post up but please be aware that the links to order a raincoat have been taken down. Thanks for your interest!

The raincoat is made from clear PVC with cotton binding on the seams. It fastens with invisible plastic snaps down the front and has two large pockets. The coat is fitted around the shoulders and flares out into an awesome swinging A-line shape!

Grad collection Raincoat

Please note that the coat in the photo above has wool binding - this gives the seams a raised fuzzy look, while the cotton sits flat. The coat you order will have cotton binding like the coat in the pictures below. This keeps the costs down and is quicker to produce, meaning you'll get your coat faster!




Here's how it works:

1. You email me with your measurements and preferred binding colour. The best way to get the right measurements is to find a (non-stretch) jacket that fits you well, and measure the width of the back between the shoulders. This is the most important measurement for me as this is where the jacket is most fitted. I'll also need your sleeve length and a bust measurement.


2. I'll find the binding in your preferred colour and email you a photo, as well as a time frame for production. This will usually be around two weeks, but may be slightly more or less depending on how many other orders I have and how busy my other job is.

3. You approve the binding colour, confirm your order and pay for the coat with Paypal. The cost of each coat is $110 (Australian dollars) + $15 shipping for Australian customers, or $25 shipping for international orders.

When the coat is finished, I'll take a photo and email you to let you know it's on it's way!

If you have any more questions, feel free to email me or ask in the comments.
