Kwik Sew 3916

Over the last couple of winter seasons, I've seen the large plaid blanket vests/ponchos as a fashion trend. When I found this fabric at my local JoAnn Fabrics, it jumped into my cart and came home with me.
I wanted a vest instead of a poncho, and Kwik Sew 3916 was the perfect pattern!

What a fun project! I did purchase extra fabric, as I knew that this would be a fabric hog when I needed to match the oversized plaid. For that reason, I did need to shorten the length of the vest by 1 inch, which was fine with me.

Love the cut-on cap sleeve, and pockets! Although this is a polyester fabric, it is very soft and warm.  An unusually nice find from JoAnn's.....sometimes we sewists get lucky!


The Historical Society in my town is currently working on a barn raising project, and I  thought this would make for an interesting photo. Note the first flakes of snow for this season!
