Re: 8/7 TSV Poncho is way too long for Petites - looks ridiculous!

Personally, I like my ponchos a little longer and drapey.    Not this particular one, however.   There doesn't seem to be enough fabric unless you go up a size.

Most ponchos are longer than this one.  They are meant to be long.

I'm not a fan of the poncho. I think it looks like a throw folded in half, with a hole cut in the middle. JMHO.

@lolakimono  Thx lola... one can see in the photo that the poncho will be about 4" longer on a shorter person.

Reading about poncho concerns here, I doubt that I could function with the sleeve jazz going on... but that would be my issue with a poncho, I think!

I love Sharon. I thought she looked really cute when she presented it this am. She was in the spice color. She looked way better than the other host. I didn't care for the necklace they had her wear but I thought the length was cute on her.

Sharon said she was 5'2. Also the vendor said she too was 5'2 also

I posted in the other thread that I personally love to belt my ponchos.  I put the belt on the front part only and leave the back hang loose. 

 

That is one reason why I don't care for a poncho with sleeves.  I have one of the Colleen Lopez ruffled ponchos and it is perfect for that.

In a pinch, I have actually worn a throw

That's EXACTLY what I thought it looked like.

I thought it looked good on the hosts and models but it would be too cumbersome for me to wear...  too much material (even soft cushy material)..... I just wouldn't wear it.  Nice colors tho...
