Hi Does anyone know anywhere I could get lightweight but warm enough for a Scottish spring, plain, raincoats for two girls aged 4 and 6. The closest I've come is the jojo bebe maman fisherman jacket, but the biggest size is 5-6 and my eldest will be 7 in November.
I've been all over the internet and am lacking inspiration and I'm running out of sites to try. They all seem to be very patterny...
I just got some Trespass jackets for my similarly aged DDs from Amazon, and they're brill. Removable fleece inner, windproof and rain proof jacket with a hood and only �15-20 (two different styles I got for them). They are plain but I prefer that.
Mountainwarehouse do a jacket similar to the Jojo fisherman's one. I think they had navy or pink with striped jersey linings. I can't see them on the website but they had loads in our local store and were half-price last week (around £15 I think).
Thank you for the suggestions. In an ideal world (i.e. in my head), it would be a below the bum length, navy blue, with the odd discrete pink trim and be able to go with everything while still looking "smart".
A bit like this: http://welliesandworms.co.uk/hatley-girls-waterproof-splash-jacket.html but with the colours in reverse. Oh and costing about £25/£30....
I looked on mountainware house, as I like the sound of the stripey jersey linings, but couldn't see them either, but they might be worth looking out for.
Isn't she going to think that's very twee the day she steps into Y4? Or is it just DD2 who developed a teens attitude to coats very young. Her purple waterproof is in perfect condition because she won't wear it.
DD1's is the veteran of may adventures on City streets, English hills and Swiss mountains.
Outdoor shop websites aren't terribly helpful because it's really hard to work out how long, thick and smart things look from the pictures.
