Poncho

I wanted to wear a poncho to work but I couldn't find a design that I loved so I decided to make it myself. 

What you will need.

- 1 to 2 meters of fabric

- scirrors

- sewing machine and serger

 

Step 1

Fold the fabric in half (decide if you want the hem line to be even) I wanted the front of my poncho to be a little shorter in the front.

Step 2

Fold the fabric in half again. Cut along this fold and stop at the first half fold. (this will be at the back of the neck)

Step 3

Depending on how wide you want the neck opening to be, cut along the first fold evenly on both sides of the 1/4 fold and cut.

Step 4

From the edge of the cut on the first fold, create a diagonal line to the cut on the second fold. This will create a opening for your neck, and based on the angle of the diagonal you will create a tight or wide neck opening.

Step 5

On the bottom corners of the poncho cut of the extra material to prevent dragging.

Step 6

Use your serger or sewing machine to trim all the raw edges. This will prevent any fraying of the material.

Step 7

Decide and measure where you'd like to create a large button hole. The holes will help create a space for a belt for the poncho.

Step 8

Grab one of your waist belts, and voila! your poncho is done in an afternoon.
