There is something incredibly satisfying when it comes to making your own clothes or accessories. And while I am far behind in my skills from all my apparel design friends, there are smallish things I can still make or refashion when I have free time on my hands. This is the easiest poncho that I’ve ever made. It came in handy last fall when I broke my elbow too, because I could hide the splint under it. And the fact that it’s made from a wool blanket, helped me stay warm in November. Not as warm as I would’ve liked during this photo shoot though. My friend Ania of Alacloth and I always seem to pick the coldest days, but at least we shoot several looks at a time.
