DIY Belted Poncho & Removable Neck Warmer + Pattern Review

Hi Darlings!

Todays OOTD is a throw it on and run out the door look lol. I was running so late this morning that I  put some jeans on and grabbed my recently made belted poncho. I made it a few weeks ago but have been so busy I hadn’t had time to wear it. I also made the neck warmer from the extra fabric I had, it is removable so I don’t have to wear it all day, especially when it warms up here in Cali.

It’s super simple to make and works great for days when you just need something fabulous to through over some jeans and a t-shirt! I grabbed my red target bag to bring out the red in the plaid and off I went to start my day. I hope you guys have a wonderful day!!

Pattern Description: M6209 Pattern Sizing: I cut the x-small

Fabric: 100% Tartan Plaid Wool HERE Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done? Yes Were the instructions easy to follow? So easy you don’t even need them, lol I could have made this blindfolded…okay maybe to blindfolded but yes it was very easy to make.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I was in need of a great belted poncho and I LOVED the idea of making it in plaid.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None. I made the neck warmer separate and used no pattern.

Would you recommend it to others? Yes
