Poncho Atitlán

IMG_8668A Guatemalan scarf found it’s way from the thrift to my sewing room via my daughter, who has an artistic eye and great fashion sense. We decided to make a simple pullover poncho, that would show off the traditional woven border on this light grey cotton blend fabric.IMG_8695She also had some thrifted trim that we used around the neck and the bottom edge. It was a quick and easy sew, and the finished garment is simple in design. All we did was cut out a section in the middle, so that the length was right, sew the shoulder/sleeve seam, sew up the sides, and cut a neckline.

IMG_8686Ponchos are very trendy right now. I have another version that is almost finished, and was cut following a pattern. I’m anxious to see if it has a more flattering silhouette.  This one just does its own thing! What do you think? Do you like ponchos?




Thanks for looking and Happy Sewing!
