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.

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
