Originally I wanted a poncho I could wear in the rain, and I think it could be done with a polyester nylon blend and a knit collar. Since I only go out in the rain when I am on crossing guard duty at my school, I wondered if my arms would be restricted if I made this in a treated rain coat fabric. And that would be a problem since I have to hold up a large stop sign on said crossing guard duty. So I moved on to thought number two. I decided to make an interlined cape with faux sherling on the inside. Ah, my mornings are warmer now and I love my new cape. This is a super fast sew and the results are...wonderful! I am now in jeopardy of making several more and becoming known as the "poncho lady".
Used a kelly green heavy knit with black flecks and a cheetah swimwear fabric for piping around neck, armholes and pockets. Made it knee length and added oversize pockets at hips. I hemmed pocket tops; pocket sides were inserted into the front/back/side seams. Looks amazing.
I made this in one size smaller than my RTW size in tops. I made it in a cheetah fleece with black piping on the front, back seams and the edge of arm hole. It's so cute, my husband was very impressed and likes how chic it looks. Check out more on patternreview, I will post a complete review and pics. This is a great pattern for anyone who needs something quick for beginners or advanced sewers.
I made two of these for my daughters. Both out of a soft ponte knit. They went together so easily and they look sensational. Both girls have gotten many complaints and everyone wants to know where they can get one too. Another hit!
I'm currently making this poncho in a deep burgundy boucle. It's in progress however had to write as its coming along really well. I do plan to add lining & double the cowl in the same material. It's such a lovely design which I plan to make more of. Thank you Hot Patterns!
I had this traced and my fabric cut in no time flat. It sewed up beautifully, with all the pieces matching as they should.
The fabric choice on this one is quite crucial - while it needs to have some drape, it also needs to be a fairly stable fabric as per the suggestions.
Made this from a wool herringbone novelty I had in my stash--lined it with a yummy satin-it is warm but not bulky, feels heavenly to wear, and is stylish. Something I'm planning to wear casually shopping and to sporting events, as well as in more formal settings such as professional conferences (where the rooms are always freezing). I think this would be smashing in a silky, drapey, sparkling slinky knit for a fun dressy top as well. Once you have the pattern cut out, and fit to your length, it truly can be made up in a hour or less.
This easy-to-make poncho (1 hr + cutting time) will have you stopping traffic every time you wear it! The construction couldn't be simpler. Just follow the pictorial diagram. I used a light sweater knit and my serger and had it completed in an hour. I wore my poncho yesterday to a holiday boutique and I had no less than 7 people stop me to ask where I had purchased it. Same thing happens every time I wear it. Yes, it's that chic! The only drawback is your family and friends will all want you to make them one! Leaving you less time to make more fast and fabulous patterns for yourself!
I made mine out of a print microfleece and added a kangaroo style pocket in front. The cowl is soft enough and long enough to come over my head if I get cold. I bought the fabric on my way to a quilting retreat, made it the first day and wore it every day after that.
