Spring is in the air! I'm so ready for some nice weather and getting out of the winter slumps. I'm FINALLY getting this one shared with you- I've had this blouse finished for sometime now.
I modified the design slightly- it's actual pattern is a Fringed Poncho Top but I eliminated the fringe. Since I'm short (5' even) the top was already longer than how it looked on the model - which I liked- so I omitted the fringe. For that reason, I do tuck it when I wear it (self confidence thing but I don't want to look even shorter! lol) Tan France taught me the "French tuck". (Any other Queer Eye fans out there?! New season coming soon to Netflix!)
One more thing I want to point out on the pattern- the title is also a little misleading with "poncho" as there are defined sleeves (but they are roomy which I love!). The pattern is worked in one piece- which I liked because less sewing at the end! The repetitive lace pattern is also great because you can work and listen to Podcasts or "watch" tv.
I used Lion Brand Coboo yarn for this on. I made it in yellow which is not a color I usually wear but it turns out I love it! The coboo yarn is soft and breathable (it's 51% cotton), plus it's an easy yarn to work with. I think it's perfect for this project- I love the drape that came in the finished piece. If you're looking to add a great piece to your spring/summer wardrobe- this is it!
