Wow, Leslie! Now projects like this make me REALLY want to learn how to sew. :) My daughter saw the picture and asked where we could buy that! Awesome job!

I am teaching sewing to kids and one of them really wants to make an open-weave type poncho. Thank you so much for the info! The kids are not using my serger, so I think I will try out putting bias tape on the edges before trying to sew the seams.

I think your fabric is awesome, but I didn't know you could purchase stuff liked that! I thought you knitted when I saw it. They are beautiful. I wonder what other fabrics you would make a poncho with?

Wow, Leslie. For such a "simple" project, you took it all the way and beyond. Great job, and such groovy (yes, I said groovy) fabric. Your niece will be beaming in her trendy poncho and one to match for dolly.

What lucky girls! I agree about the fabric though, not what I would choose but these kids have different ideas, wasn't it that way in our day too!

The fabric and style are perfect for a little girl and her doll. Way to go!

Kudos for tackling this fabric, I salute you! They look real chic. I'm sure both niece and doll will wear these a lot.

I absolutely adore the fabric! And the tassles do look great - worth the pain - well maybe :)

The fabric is CUTE, not dreadful! I must agree, you are the best auntie ever. Do post pics of Maddie and dollie wearing these if you can.

I just did a sewing lesson with a friend's dd -- we did view B. I had suggested she get some fleece so we didn't have to deal with raw edges. While I was setting up her machine she was playing with one of the scraps so I suggested she might like to make a hair band. Boy, was she a happy camper when she left with her poncho & hair band! You are right on the money -- perfect pattern for a young girl to start learning to sew. (She's 11)

Ah, Miz done started the troubles now.... I get regular 'orders' from the DGDs for outfits with matching clothes for the AG dolls. Your out fit is really cute, good work!

Just beautiful! Maddie will be one lucky birthday girl! The poncho came out great.

Love the fabric, but glad *I* didn't have to sew it up. Your labor of love is a huge success. I like the neckline and the square shape a lot! I might have to copy this.

Very nice! I thought you crocheted it! Watch out, making those doll clothes can be addictive. Your neice will love it.

Oh - I actually think the fabric is fab - it's just what girls that age really love. Lucky girl and lucky doll!

You win the "awesome Auntie" award hands down. The ponchos are cute

How cute! How sweet of you to make those!

CUTE! Too bad about the sizing. Even for a simple project, you don't want to have to make lots of alterations.
