The Mae Poncho from the DIBY Club is here and just in time for fall. It fits perfectly into my fall wardrobe and you will want one also. Speaking of wanting one, my mom does too. She told me over a week ago and I had forgotten. I’ve had a sewing slump since finishing this poncho until today. I should have shared it with you guys early this week, but I couldn’t get myself motivated to sit down and write this post. So here I am, almost 11 am, eating blueberry pancakes and thinking that I need to get myself on track. I finished two more garments since yesterday and feel like I am back in the groove.
So back to Mae. She is pretty lovely, isn’t she? Ponchos are nice for fall layering which is how I am sharing my Mae. I layered my poncho over a solid black tank. I made the most basic option for my poncho because I didn’t have enough fabric for a cowl neck or the hood option. Honestly, sometimes basic is perfect! I also knew I didn’t want sleeves but there are sleeves included with the pattern. I created buttonholes according to the pattern directions and added a RTW belt.
I love the contrasting trim fabric I added here!!
OK, Fabric Talk:
The mustard floral is a lovely Sweater Knit. It sewed easily and has wonderful drape perfect for Mae. The solid burgundy is also a Sweater Knit. Both fabrics came from Sew Blessed Fabrics.

Here are a few photos non- belted which, you could also do.
