Purple Silk Tweed Poncho

April 2, 2017




Pattern: Simplicity Pattern 1281 Misses' Jackets in Two Lengths, Belted Cape & Capelet


Fabric:  Purple Silk Tweed from Fabrique on sale! I went to so many stores looking for the right fabric and I finally found this at the last place I visited. 


Notions:  Items on the instructions including black thread and Simplicity Faux Leather Trim.  I added a Mystery Maracuja tag. 


How did it look compared to the pattern?  I used View C and it looked the same. 


Were the instructions easy to follow?  Mostly.  That belt hole through me for a loop.  


Likes? The outcome! This is also very comfortable. 


Dislikes?  This was the first time I applied a trim like this.  It was extremely difficult and I spent the most time on this.  Luckily, I took this to #projectsew and Monica and Sabrina helped me figure it out.  I used the Simplicity Youtube video as a reference when I got home. 


Pattern changes?  None.


Will I sew this again? Yeah!  


Photos:  Special thanks to my beautiful Cousin in the pictures looking great!
