Mae Poncho

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. 


  • Necklines: Crew // Hood // Oversized Cowl
  • Fit: Open Sides // Closed Sides with Cuffs
  • Optional Belt Openings for Body Contour

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

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
