{My photographer for this fashion post is pretty awesome and you should book her for all your photography needs!} 

One of my favorite bloggers, Merrick’s Art, made this adorable DIY Cape and I couldn’t wait to make my own. I made a couple changes to her tutorial to make it more of a sweater poncho than a cape:

You need:

1 yard fabric {I LOVE how easy Girl Charlee knits are to use. I made one with French Terry, Haachi Sweater & Jersey Knit}

Sewing Machine and/or Serger

  • Lay your fabric so that the longest side is folded in half. This fabric is 60″ wide by 36″ long so when it’s folded in half it should be 36″ wide by 30″ long. 
  • Cut down the middle of just the top layer. If you cut both layers it will be ruined!

  • {optional} serge all around the edges, rounding edges as you go. With Girl Charlee knits they won’t fray so you can leave them unfinished if you like.
  • Fold back in half, right sides together, and sew from the middle to the bottom of the fabric to create your arm holes.
