Finished this today, and had a chance to test it out this morning for warmth. It was pretty chilly here near the beach, so it was great! McCall's M6209, View E.

I was given the fabric about a year ago, when I started sewing. Mom had it stashed in an old cedar chest. I couldn't figure out what to do with it until I found this pattern.

It's a light weight wool plaid, that's scratchy against the skin. I lined it with fleece to protect my skin, and give it extra warmth and weight. I was about 1/2 yd short of the needed amount. So, since my favorite store had Fleece on sale :-), I purchased that extra half yard to finish the inside of the collar. I was very pleased with the results. Since the pattern didn't call for a lining, I had to use my sewing skills to make it work. I'm not a big fan of plaids, because of the difficulty at times in matching the design... but I think I like my new poncho.
