Poncho Refashion

I saw this cute poncho on pinterest (of course).  
I knew right away that I had to make one. 

 I have a poncho, but I wasn't willing to cut into that one.  My neighbor recently gave me a cute one that was her daughters, to give to Aubrey.  I tried to sell Aubrey on it, but she is very sensitive and particular about the fabrics she wears/tolerates.  One day I decided to try it on.  I didn't think it would fit, but it did!  This was the perfect candidate for my refashion!  

I forgot to take a before picture of the poncho, but I tried to cheat one for you all ;).

I cut off the sleeves, serged the arm holes, and folded them in and sewed them down.  Super easy refashion.  

This will be cute in the summer for a little extra warmth on a windy day at the beach.  I think it will look cute with some jean shorts and a bathing suit top underneath.  

We don't seem to be anywhere near summer yet.  The days have been cold and the ocean is still freezing.  It will come, though.  It will come .... and when it does, my new poncho and I will be ready!

Love it! I like the idea of wearing something warm but yet coolish during the summer (when the nights get cold). Great job.
