Simplicity 8173 Misses’ No Sew Poncho
When you’re getting back into the groove of things, you make something quick and easy for satisfaction. My choice for quick and I mean quick, less than an hour to cut and sew this pattern.
I purchased this fabric at Joann’s. The color combo on this one is not available online, but with all the plaid choices out there for winter, I am sure you can find one that you love.
I paired it with a mustard colored sweater from Nordstrom.com, which is no longer available online. Linked below are a few links to others that are the same color and similar in style.
Belt and Blue jeans from at Ross for Dress Less, you gotta love a good pair of stretchy jeggings. It is that time of year for all stretchy pants, at least for me anyway. I love to eat.
Boots are Top Moda purchased at Nordstromrack.com , no longer available, but here is a really close pair, there is only one zipper on this pair instead of 2 zippers. These were on sale, so they may not be available for long.
