This morning was rainy and gloomy. The rain stopped but it is still gloomy here. I decided to brighten up my day. Did I mention that it was chilly this morning? Well, it was and that helped to inspire me.
As I sat thinking that I would have to get dressed or turn up the heat, I had a thought. I have several pieces of fabric that I have woven that I want to use to make clothing. I read that ponchos are coming into fashion again. It is probably for women that this is true but I decided "Big Deal! I have never had a poncho" So I took my fabric and started looking at it (and yes fondling it.)
I tried one fabric but it didn't seem right to me.
So I took some fabric that I wove using an orange colored warp and tried it.
Oh yes, I do like that fabric for this idea.
So I decided which parts I wanted to be on the front of the poncho and started working on it. Every seam is a simple straight seam and there are only four seams in the garment. This is my kind of garment sewing. I didn't have a pattern or instructions, but I had seen a picture and was sure I could do it.
It looks like I succeeded!
