Share In Style: Japanese Inspiration - BurdaStyle Poncho 12/2014

Hello..
I am joining Share In Style hosted by Rosy - Sewingadicta and Mis Papelicos.
The topic for February 16th was Japanese Inspiration, I am already thinking about Mori girl style that is in the list of modern Japanese street style.
Mori means forest in Japanese, which the style concept is natural and earthly.

Well, I decided to use my boiled wool in green earthy color from stash and sew a lovely poncho based on BurdaStyle pattern.
After all, I am happy with how it turned out and it was fast and easy to make it. I am done in less than two hours.

Inspiration:
Japanese Mori style

Materials:
1.5 yards of boiled wool in green earthy color, self-made bias tape from knit fabric and same color of thread


Pattern:
Draft it yourself poncho from BurdaStyle 12/2014 size 34-38.

source from BurdaStyle 12/2014
Sewing process:
I mentioned above that the sewing process was fast and easy. I fold the fabric as the instruction said, measured directly on the wrong side of the fabric and cut it. The result looks like big square fabric with a hole in the middle.
Then I sew all the raw edges using an overlocked sewing machine. And then I folded 1.5 cm seam allowance to the wrong side of the fabric and stitched it.
After that, I pin and sew the bias tape on the neck opening. Then topstitched the neckline using twin needle.

The last part was stitched the lower edge of the poncho, follow the marked line with the wrong sides of the fabric together. Done!

Here are some pictures of the finished poncho, front, side and back views


 
 




Until next..

  1. This is an adorable poncho Hana! I love it. It doesn't overwhelm your petite frame either. Perfect.

  3. Oh My Goodness! Your poncho is fantastic, and I can totally see the Japanese influence Hana! I remember when I was young, I and my Mom made a few ponchos, but they were pointed at the center front and back. Did you have those too? This one that you've made is ever so chic, and as Margo has said, it doesn't overwhelm you. You look fabulous....lovely photos too!

    1. Hi Sue, I made poncho with my mom too when I was young. They were pointed in the front and back too and I wore that in the carnival :)
      Thank you for lovely comment.

  4. I would never have put you in a poncho Hana because of your petite frame, yet how wrong could I be?!! Your poncho looks fabulous on you. It's perfect and I love it. And ideal for the natural and earthy theme :) x

    1. Thank you, Dawn. I was thinking that the poncho will not suit me but I am wrong.
      I think the big different between this poncho and other poncho is the style. Burda made the front shorter than the back. And they were square :)

  5. Cute! I like yours much better than the Burda magazine one (maybe it's just the weird angles of the pictures or something).

    1. Thank you, Tiffany. I agree with you, the weird angle of the model picture is not helping us to see the garment properly :)

  7. I agree with everyone - this poncho is gorgeous on you - I love the coat length back as well. Perfect fabric choice. I think the brooch is perfect too.

    1. Thank you, Sarah Liz. I bought the brooch in flea market some year back when I visited Portugal. I think is the best accessory for poncho :)
