I love this poncho. I love that it’s oversized and warm, I love the fabric, and I love that nobody could tell I made it. When I wore it to work last week someone asked me if it was Pendleton. I died.
Skill level: This poncho sewing project would be good for intermediate sewers.
Time commitment estimate: A few hours, depending on skill level.
If you want to make this poncho for yourself, check out this link
for supplies I use for just about every project. In addition, I used this pattern
(McCall’s 6603), and I got the fabric at Joann’s.
I used this pattern before for a knit poncho and am way more content with how this woven one turned out. I think the main thing to pay attention to if you make one yourself, is that the fabric pattern lines up well. If yours is like this fabric pattern, I made sure the lines were exactly horizontal, that the shoulder stripes lined up, that the hood seam lined up and that the pocket was a perfect match to the fabric below it. It is definitely worth taking the time up front for a better finished product.
