I had a beach poncho like this when I was a little kid and I’ve been wanting another one for lounging around the pool but couldn’t find one sooo, I decided to make a few in case anyone else has been on the hunt for one.  These towels are extra soft and cozy and perfect for beach/pool/lakeside days!  I added a zipper pocket to the kangaroo pouch so you can keep your joints dry and in a separate space from where your sandy hands rest.  I dunno about you but I absolutely need a smaller isolated pocket bc I know I will be laying down in this thing and I don’t wanna worry about things tumbling out of the kangaroo pouch.  It’s nice to have peace of mind and dry joints!!  This poncho is joined on the sides but does have a nice big arm opening and a slit at the bottom for full range of motion.

 

I try to give my best guess on the sizing but encourage you to always use your measurements.  It can be tricky to measure your own body and add in enough extra space for ease and such so my best advice is to measure something you already have and love the fit of.  That being said, this was upcycled from a fairly big beach towel and would likely fit many bodies, depending on how you like the fit….please use the measurements below to make sure it will work for you the way you want it to.  The model in the photo is 5′ tall, chest measurement 32″ and generally wears a small.

The materials I use are vintage and will show some wear and minor imperfections.  This is a beautiful patina that comes from years of love and mending.   Any major imperfections are carefully repaired through visible mending.   My goal is first to make you a garment that is sturdy af and will last a lifetime and second, a one of a kind piece of wearable art.   I recommend washing your new garment on a gentle cycle and laying flat to dry.  Thank you for being part of Mother Nature’s Army by supporting slow fashion.
