Poncho for shortie

(7 Posts)

I'm 5ft nothing, and I really, really, really want a poncho. I've been looking for 2 years, but they all look too long and silly on me. Can anyone make any suggestions? I want it to come to sort of waist level, not a big, flowy thing.

Please help, I want one before they go out of fashion!

Can you make yourself one? It can't be that difficult

M&S. Thinner ones look less bulky.

Thanks, but not in my tkmax, and m&s ones still too swampy.

TBH, I'd avoid them. They're not great on tall people on shorter people they just look wrong.

The reason you haven't found one to suit is because they just don't suit.

Give up on them. Find a nice coat, that fits.
