Kwik Sew 3916


HUMBERTO CARRENO/STARTRAKSPHOTO


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!

    1. Thanks, Donna! It's a great pattern, quick and easy. I made the XL, worried that it might be TOO oversized, but it's not.
