Minoru 1: Kelly 0

Anorak jackets are here to stay in my wardrobe. 

I’ve made 2 Minoru and 2 Kelly anoraks because I wanted a shower proof version of both jackets.

In the Minoru corner…
I made the Minorus 5 years ago and I wear these two jackets a lot throughout the year. 


Both Minorus are lined and so comfy. The showerproof one is a fav.

These do take a while to cut out and construct.

They do take time to collect the notions and fabrics
The minoru has no external pocket so I’ve added a zipper welt pocket to both versions.
In the Kelly corner…
This month I’ve made an interlined Kelly and a shower proof version.

Kelly takes time to cut out and construct.

Collecting the notions and fabrics takes time.
Kelly needs snaps, a zipper, drawstring, tape, ‘pulley-thingies’.
Kelly has pockets but that pocket flap details isn’t functional so I made it functions on the second Kelly.

The instructions for the Kelly are not easy to follow and I had to mark the pattern pieces so they fit my size.

The Minoru instructions are clear. 
The Kelly instructions need more work.
Where these anoraks worth the effort?
Any anorak works for me but I’d happily make the Minoru again.
