This is the second pattern I have tested from Ellie and Mac. I enjoyed sewing the poncho because it was easy pattern assembly, a fast sew and fit correctly from the start. I used Blizzard Fleece from Joann’s for both layers. It is super soft, warm, and structured. I couldn’t resist this awesome plaid print either.
This is probably only the second or third time I have made button holes on my machine but it was super easy actually. It honestly took me way longer to pick out buttons than to sew them on. 🙂
Since it is already cold in Ohio, I have wore the Sugar and Spice Poncho several times already.
I made the turtle neck, shortened by half. There is also a cowl neck option included with the pattern. You can choose between the lined and the unlined versions. I believe two length options are given, but the pattern can be easily modified to lengthen or shorten.
Here is the link to the Sugar and Spice Poncho so you can pick up your copy while it is on sale. Also note, their ENTIRE website is on sale 50% OFF!!!
You still have time to sew a few gifts for Christmas gifts and holiday parties.
I am a single dog mom of two and we happily reside in a small house in Ohio. We spend our days playing fetch, digging holes in the garden, and sewing, lots of sewing. We have high hopes of moving to the mountains someday. The dogs don’t really know that yet, but they will understand. I shamelessly hoard fabric and feel slightly sorry for whoever has to sort my stash when I am gone. I am employed full time in a industry that requires little of my creativity, but basically lets me wear whatever I want. So it works out.
I can usually be found behind one of my sewing machine avoiding human contact. I test a lot of clothing patterns and therefore always have a new outfit to share. You have most likely found my blog through some sort of sewing outlet and will quickly realize that I am sewing for a plus size body. For reference, I am 5'1 and wear a range from a 2-5x. Sizes change with every designer and you can't trust ready to wear sizing when you are making your own clothing. Your tape measure will become one of your most used tools and if you misplace them like I do, you should pick up several. I will be sharing the good, the bad, and the A-MA-ZING with you… So stay tuned. I will also try to teach you a few of my tricks along the way.
People always tells me they want to learn how to sew. My best advice is you have to start. Just do it! You are going to mess up, you will break needles, you will ruin the pretty fabric, you will stab your fingers, but you will learn. You will make something and you will wear it. Someone will say, “I like your shirt.” and you will smile and say, “Thanks, I made it.” You will race home and make something else. Pretty soon you have made more good things than bad and you will feel proud of yourself and you should. I will be proud of you too. :)
Ok, that is enough rambling, I have sewing to do. :) SequoiaLynn
