If you are a beginner, you want to stay away from complicated patterns. There are some elaborate poncho patterns out there and some are more difficult than others.
The easiest poncho patterns usually consist of two pieces. Since there are only two pieces to make and to sew, they are the most straightforward to do. If you are looking for patterns, always look for these simple designs.
Some of the more complicated patterns for ponchos can have up to ten pattern pieces. Evidently, this can be complicated for beginners. Therefore, it is best to stay away from these patterns until you become more proficient at sewing or have some experience with garment construction.
Once you are more proficient though, you do want to look at some of the more complicated poncho patterns. Some of the more complicated patterns can include a hood, additional lining, closures, and other interesting things. Spotlight recommends having at least intermediary skills before attempting to tackle this type of poncho.
Is Making A Poncho Expensive?
The overall cost of making a poncho will be subject to a number of things. As a general rule of thumb, more complicated patterns take a bit more budget than the simpler options out there. Of course, it also depends on the fabric you work with. Genuine merino wool can be more expensive than cotton fabrics, so this is something to think about if you want to make a poncho on a budget.
Size also matters when it comes to the cost of your poncho. Since larger sizes do require more fabric, they can be more expensive to make. Of course, if you often find it difficult to get comfortable clothes that match your style, they are more than worth investing in.
Can I Make Novelty Ponchos?
Ponchos can be great for fancy dress as well as Halloween, so you can make some of your regular poncho patterns in specialty fabrics. At Spotlight, you can find many specialty fabrics outside of the poncho fabrics range, which are bound to work for all those fancy dress and Halloween projects.
