The Popover Poncho is a sporty update on the bohemian staple. The cowl neck keeps you cozy and warm while the classic hoody style pocket gives you a place to store you cellphone or tuck your hands away from a chilly breeze. Make a stand-out piece with bold Pendleton Wool, or use a cuddly fleece for casual, every-day-wear. Whatever the fabric, your poncho will look completely chic with a pair of skinny jeans and booties.
THIS GARMENT FITS OVER THE WEARERS SHOULDERS AND ARMS, FINISHED MEASUREMENTS ARE THE MAXIMUM FOR THE SIZE LISTED. Garment should fit with room for movement and comfort. If you measure the same as the finished garment size you will want to size up to the next size larger, or grade in-between sizes.
