Hi! As I promised, here is the tutorial on how to make a poncho top from a rectangle fabric!
I made some diagrams to show how to cut the fabric and where to sew. You can click the image above to enlarge.
❤ 1-2 yards or fabric, depending on the length of the top/dress. I recommend fabrics that flows well, and avoid stiff fabrics, such as denim, 100% cotton, linen or wool. I used very light weight polyester fabrics for my top and dress. I recommend light weight poly or rayon blend. Fabric that drapes well would work well.
❤ Elastic band. This is what you use to cinch the waist part. Cut two pieces of elastic bands, in length that’s half of your waist. For instance, if your waist measurement is 28″ around, cut two 14″ elastic bands.
If you have any questions, please leave a comment! I will try to answer as much as I can.
Hope you enjoy this and please do share some photos if you make one! (Instagram: @vivatveritas)
