Kelly anorak – not worth the hassle.

I need a jacket that is water proof, as it rains a lot where I live. I have been browsing around for a pattern, and thought about making another Lonetree jacket as I love that pattern, but I wanted to try something new 🙂 I have been eying the Kelly for a while, but became …
