DIY ponche plage valle maje (27 of 45)

I’m so excited to be posting this article! I am in LOVE  with this DIY poncho inspired by maje (total copy to be honest). When I saw this poncho on their instagram I immediately wanted to make one ans miracle.. I stumbled accross this beautiful striped fabric at fabricville (hidden between some very ugly stuff!). When i saw I knew it would be the one and would become the most beautiful beach (and city) poncho of all times. Especially since only 200 of the original maje exclusive we’re available and already sold out!

Supplies

  • striped fabric  (I used this one)
  • men’s tuxedo  (paid 14 $ in thrift shop)
  • sewing machine and thread
  • black ribbon (enough to tie around your waist and)
