Hi sewing friends! I’m so excited to be on April Rhodes Popover Poncho tour! (and giving away a copy…see the end of the post!)It’s a super cute, super simple pattern just perfect for crisp weather. April has such a great eye for making patterns that are practical, stylish, and that flatter women’s bodies so well!
I am already a huge fan of her Staple dress pattern. It’s my go to dress to sew and to wear.
I chose to keep my poncho casual, and sew it up in gray sweat shirt fleece from Jo-Ann. I added some interest to the collar lining with some black and white stripe Ponte De Roma knit from Girl Charlee.
I also added some metal eyelets for the collar casing, but then struggled to find a safety pin small enough to thread my twill tape through them. So, I’m leaving them empty for now.
I made my poncho about 1 1/2 inches longer than the original S/M and I think I like it just a titch longer.
This pattern was so fun to sew and to wear that I can’t wait to make another. I’m just waiting for the right fabric to come along… 🙂
I love how the hem of the poncho rises up to the wrist and then dips in the front and back. April sure designed a smart, smart pattern!
Now who’s ready for a giveaway!?

Love your poncho! The contrast in the color is great!
Delia! I LOVE the stripe cowl neck- so cute!!
oh i love it in the more casual sweatshirt knit! looks incredibly cozy. way to take advantage of the snow for photos, too! 😉
Thanks Kristin! 🙂 It stuck for a while actually and then finally melted today. People have been telling me how it’s not normal for that to happen here, but it has actually been nice. I miss the snow! 🙂
The stripes peeking out at the neckline are great! This looks really comfortable. =)

I love your site. Its family is beautiful. You are talented.
Perfect Popover Poncho!
Great look and I agree with the others that this poncho would make a fabulous gift (after the first one for myself, of course!)
Of course!;) Thanks Sue.
I love all the poncho’s in the tour, but yours is my fave! Thanks for the giveaway!
aw. Thanks Lise!
I absolutely LOVE this poncho! anyway I can purchase the pattern?
Thank you Denisse! You can! Here is the link: http://april-rhodes.com/products/new-the-popover-poncho-pdf-download
You can use a bobby pin to thread the twill tape through the eyelets. 🙂
Last year I made my own pattern for skiing, very similar to this one, but I LOOOOVE the cowl neck. I’ll have to purchase this one and see how different it is from the Luhkka patterns from Northern Finland. We use them for skiing to brush off the snow. This may be easier, and I can make more for my family! Thanks for sharing.
That is genius!!! Thank you! I’ll have to grab some bobby pins and give it a try.
How do I get the pattern? Thank You!
There is a link in the post that should lead you to April’s pattern listing. You can purchase it from there. <3
