Nursing SHAWL pattern

I am looking for a Nursing SHAWL pattern, not one with a piece of fabric that goes around your neck, but an actual shawl, much like this one on Etsy:
Stylish Designer Breastfeeding Poncho- Taylor - size REG

Any suggestions? Or links to one?

Re: Nursing SHAWL pattern

I can't really tell from the pic. Does the fabric go over your head and then have holes for your arms to come through? If so I would look for a PONCHO pattern (there are several free online) and then modify it to have arm holes and the cute fabric on the front. A shawl wraps around your body starting at your back going over one shoulder then across the body and overlapping on the other shoulder. A poncho would be like a circle of fabric with a hole for your head. I made a fleece poncho for my son as a coat I could use in his car seat and it was super easy and quick. Of course, fleece doesn't need to be hemmed so that saved some time.

Re: Nursing SHAWL pattern

I'm thinking poncho as well. So I'm thinking maybe a poncho pattern, or maybe even a circle skirt pattern?

BUT, the neck...how would I do that to make it loose? Would I trace the pattern
flaring out a bit at the top, and sew it together that way? I could just make a
big yolk (yoke?) neck, I guess. And as far as I can tell, there are at least 2 major pieces of fabric, maybe four? If I figure this our, I'll post a tutorial!

Do you think if it came down to the fold in my legs when sitting, it would give
enough coverage?


Let me know your ideas.

Blessings,
Hope

I have been looking, I know this isn't the kind you want, but so far all I can find are the apron like covers.
I'm still looking though. I bought one like what you're looking for at Wal Mart earlier this year, I think it was like 18 bucks, but that's up here, everything is more expensive up here. Maybe I'll disect it and find a way to make one, I would imagine you could take a regular ponch pattern and make it out of stretchier fabric but make it looser too
