Discover the latest poncho model designed by Louise Robert!
This design was imagined by Sylvie Mékidèche as part of the KID SILK CONTEST that took place on my blog in the spring of 2022. Among all the selected projects, this poncho idea based on the feather theme proposed by Sylvie won the third position by public vote. Here is Défilé de Fées (Fairy Parade) pattern that I wrote especially for Sylvie according to her original idea!
