This fun and stylish poncho is perfect for covering up on those cooler summer nights. Its versatility will take you all the way from spring, through summer and into the fall.

Unlike some ponchos the shoulders on the Café Au Lait Summer Shell Poncho are fitted. They follow the natural shape of your own shoulders so that it wears much like a fitted caplet. Pattern comes in S-M and L-XL.

I designed my Shell Poncho using an ombre color scheme, you can chose to use any color(s) you like for your poncho.
