I finished my February garments on time but it takes a little bit longer to publish in the blog. I wanted to make this outfit for so long and glad I did it. The poncho hoodie is based on BurdaStyle pattern 11/2016 -126B size 36, I didn't make modification on the pattern except shorten the sleeves length 5 cm, shorten the hem line 5 cm and made the high low hem at the back not so deep - in this case I trimmed the back hemline again 3 cm. I used 1.5 cm seam allowances in all edges and sleeve and hem allowances as well.
The slim elastic pants is based on Simplicity 1314 pants A - Cynthia Rowley size 10 (36) with some adjustments, I reduced the sides and inner pants 2 cm and shorten the length 6 cm because I am small 😀
The process of sewing the poncho hoodie taking it's time because I never sew a hoodie before but BurdaStyle explained easily through their sewing course and glad I finished and liked the result. I didn't use serger to finish the raw edge because my fabric is knit that won't fray. And surprisingly my normal sewing machine needle works nicely, I used needle number 14 because the fabric is very thick. Besides sewing the hoodie hat, the nicest part of sewing this poncho was attaching the loops and the toggles.
Here are the closer look of the poncho hoodie, front - back views and the details
I loved the pants, it is very comfy and easy to wear. Nothing beat elastic pants! And off course I want to make more of this but I will add the pockets and front fly. Also, I am curious to make more modification, we will see...
Here is the details of the finished pants, hope you can spot my sewing using the twin needle at the lower waistband and hemline.
And as usual, picture of me wearing the outfit 😁
And the last picture of the whole outfit on me, front, side and back views.
Thank you for spending your time reading today's post, hope you like it as much as I do. I will be posting this outfit in Magam Challenge - Facebook for February garments with the theme "fit and finish" and I think this outfit is truly fit my daily wear 😀
