Tutorial: How to make a poncho top
May 10, 2011 By 36 Comments
a poncho top from just a rectangle fabric! I meant to post this yesterday, but for some reasons, blogger wasn't letting me post. ❤ 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. ❤ thread ❤ elastic band. This is what you use to cinch the waist part. Cut two elastic bands, in length that's half of your waist. For instance, if your waist measurement is 28" around, cut two 14" elastic bands. I'm pretty bad at writing instructions - so if you have any questions, please post 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!
