Follow along as I sew what I wear, cook and garden.

I opened my email this morning from Keep it Chic and saw this very chic woman wearing a rain bonnet. I haven't seen one of these since I was a teen maybe? I know my mother wore these and I wouldn't be caught dead in one of these. Except when I am caught in the rain without an umbrella or I don't really want to carry one anyway. When you don't have a free hand a rain hat certainly would be welcome. I've thought of making one for myself but I never have. I don't mind being out in a mist, after all here in the suburbs I only have to go from the house to the car or car to store and my hair is curly so mist usually doesn't do all that much damage. But in a downpour who wants to look like a bedraggled rat? Do any of you wear rain bonnets these days? What do you wear in the rain?
I have been sewing since I was a teenager, mostly self taught. I sew for myself, with some some occasional sewing for my daughter. I love garment sewing and will only sew home dec if desperate. I love to cook and read and try to avoid cleaning as much as possible.
