Oversized poncho for dry days in Blighty

Added Mar 10, 2017

Leicestershire, ...






I had quite a lot of fabric left over from my Marcy Tilton coat, so when I saw this simple poncho in the December 2016 magazine (which was a Christmas present along with a six-month subscription!), I thought ‘Great – get rid of that chunky stuff out of my stash’.

It’s a hybrid between the short version in the Cool Britannia range and the longer version with the cuffs. The fabric was too thick for cuffs, so I stitched up the sides as in the shorter version. I just zig-zagged all the hem edges.

It’s quite big on me but it keeps me warm and although I’ve made a few things since I last posted, it was easy to photograph yesterday as I was wearing it!

Material Notes

Chunky tweed wool mix from Minerva Crafts.

      Oh it is, Chula – the super-thick collar stops those cold Northern winds troubling me! x

    Thanks, Maria. It’s really comfortable, too and I can wear just about anything underneath it! :)
