Poncho Atitlán
by Barbara Carlon Follow

A Guatemalan scarf found it's way from the thrift to my sewing room via my daughter, who has an artistic eye and great fashion sense. We decided to make a simple pullover poncho, that would show off the traditional woven border on this light grey cotton blend fabric. She also had some thrifted trim that we used around the neck and the bottom edge. It was a quick and easy sew, and the finished garment is simple in design. All we did was cut out a section in the middle, so that the length was right, sew the shoulder/sleeve seam, sew up the sides, and cut a neckline.

Ponchos are very trendy right now. I have another version that is almost finished, and was cut following a pattern. I'm anxious to see if it has a more flattering silhouette.  This one just does its own thing! What do you think? Do you like ponchos?
