Introduction: Quick Stylish Raincoat Out of Garbage Bag and USPS Tape @TechShop

This I made off the cuff (get it?) last night at TechShop <www.techshop.ws> when my wind breaker fell off my rack >:( I'll miss it! it was sky blue and had reflective scrolly embroidery. So I went under the sink and got a garbage bag and took some mail tape from outta the office supplies and 10min later I had this stylish raincoat together. It almost looks like a leather jacket. i'm gonna eventually add some velcro to the back and a sine in reflective

Step 1: Cut the Neck

cut out the neck hole

Step 2: Take It in Around the Torso

cut the sides down to it fits around your torso. eyeball the size based on clothes you know to fit you.

Step 3: Tape Up the Sides

tape up the sides with USPS mail packing tape 

Step 4: Make the Sleeves

cut out the sleeves so they taper and tape up the seam

Step 5: Tape on the Sleeves

put the sleeves inside the vest part and tape them on

Step 6: Tape Up the Rest

tape on the other side

Step 7: Werk It!

soon, i'm gonna add a panel on the front and some sticky velcro to make it open at the front.
