It’s finally here, the moment you’ve been waiting for since my last blog post. It’s the first of the Value Village refashions! And lucky for me there’s no snow (yet) so I can still enjoy wearing this poncho without freezing my tush off.
This was a very easy DIY. There are lots of tutorials online. I found Pearls & Scissors blog post, DIY Wool Blanket Coat, particularly helpful. I liked her suggestion for bias bound belt holes and incorporated them on my poncho.
Since the blanket edges were finished by serging, I used the same method to finish the edge of the newly cut centre and neckline. Then I figured out where the belt should sit and cut slits which I bound with microsuede. It took me about 40 minutes from start to finish. Easy-peasy!
Sometimes you just need to take a moment to ponder, point at the ground and decide on your next amazing pose. Lol. Modelling is hard work!
