McCall's 8241 - DIY Poncho!

McCall’s 8241, View B

Hello everyone and HAPPY SUNDAY!!! Today I am sharing my most recent make which is McCall’s 8031 and I made view B! You can also watch my detailed pattern review by clicking here!! When McCall’s first released their Fall patterns and I came across this one…. AND I had to have it!! I LOVE ponchos! They are such a great transitional piece and they are also good for those who do not like to wear heavy coats and jackets! This pattern is also the monthly pattern for the #sewyourview sew-a-long for October and the pattern was so easy that I made sure to participate! Not only am I entering this project into the hashtag of #sewyourview, but Zaji of Zaji-Kali Makes on Youtube and Instagram is hosting a challenge and is using the hashtag #Letssewfall2021. Overall, this is an awesome pattern.... It's easy and beautiful at the same time! Below you will find pictures and a pattern review! You can also watch the pattern review on my YouTube channel here, where I feature videoclips of me in the garment! Thank you for stopping by! 15 Pictures Below; Pattern review below pictures
