GoreTex rain jacket for Gabriel

I just finished this GoreTex waterproof breathable jacket for Gabriel. It’s from Green Pepper pattern #149. The GoreTex is really sturdy material and large enough that he should be able to wear it for a couple of years yet! I started with this outdoors thread but that wouldn’t make a proper stitch so half-way through I changed to just normal thread.

The French seam in the neck was a real bitch to sew but we got there in the end.

I was breaking needles, cutting myself with scissors and losing elastic in the cuffs. Much cursing and swearing emanated from the sewing room.
