This is a 37 page PDF Download Tutorial - The Poncho - A Refashion - Sewing Tutorial

A poncho is a classic layering piece and has a functional purpose as well – to keep one warm. I decided on 4 different styles, one heavier blanket like poncho for the really cold days, and 3 made from t shirts that I have. The heavier blanket like poncho is made using a rag quilt technique and is heavy and warm The first t shirt poncho is a simple, one piece, elegant poncho which is a lightweight layering piece which can be worn all year round.  Over a tank top in summer, or over a t shirt or even over a button down shirt in spring and autumn and as an additional color layer in winter. The second t shirt poncho has sleeves and a cowl neck. The fabric can be used as a single layer or doubled for a warmer poncho. I show pictures without the added sleeves - you choose the look.And the third t shirt poncho is made by creating patchwork fabric from 2 – 3 t shirts and using the sleeves of one of them.
