The Alden Raincoat is a variation of the Talea coat. It uses the same pattern, but with only one addition, the classic raincoat yoke! Make yours in a bubblegum brightly coated vinyl like this to ensure your spirit is soaring despite the storm of cats and dogs! We made this variation and scanned in the pattern ourselves, with hopes that you all might be inspired to do the same with your pattern variations! So try this one, or impress us by posting your own pattern variation!
