The Popover Poncho sewing pattern by April Rhodes is a sporty update on the bohemian staple. A clear instruction booklet with colour photographs is included.
This poncho looks more like a cape than the traditional poncho and that is why I like it so much. Thanks April for this fabulous design. Its great to wear a poncho and not look like Clint Eastwood in a Spaghetti Western!
I chose a cosy fleece in forest green for casual every-day-wear. Although this poncho could also be made in wool for a smarter look. Its so versatile.
The cowl neck and hoody style pocket hand warmer are fantastic features and really make this poncho. I also like the hi-low hem which looks dramatic.
I lined the cowl neck with a contrasting cotton fabric in a tiny floral print. The cowl neck means that I do not need to wear a scarf to keep my neck warm – its a winner! I cut the S/M size and a L size for the bottom as I wanted a longer length. The poncho took 2 yards of 54″ wide fabric.
This poncho makes a really warm, cosy and comfortable sporty outerwear garment for the chilly winter weather.
Ladies, go and pop on a poncho!
