I fell in love with ponchos and I have a friend who also loves them, so I made one for her. She is slightly bigger than me, so it doesn't perfectly fit me, but you can see the idea.

(I have no idea why I keep my eyes closed on all pictures. Smiley )

Thanks for visiting!

Ooh, I made one almost like that--is that a McCalls pattern?

It looks gorgeous!

I bought a poncho at C&A and I basically copied it, plus adding the armholes to the front seamlines.
Thanks. Smiley
I knew there were a lot of poncholovers out there. They are just so comfortable.

It looks so warm. It reminds me of something Sherlock Holmes (the Holmes in my mind not the TV show) would wear.

Congratulations! That's a very attractive garment. I love the fabric colours & design. I too love ponchos & their various styles. (I made one from a plain coloured wool travel rug & it's so cosy.)
