Ponte Knit Fabric, Rayon, Cafe Brown
Rayon Ponte Knit fabric dense Cafe Brown. Thick double knit weave with drape. A meaty hand with some weight, which leads to a versatile sew.
Rayon/Lycra, 54″ wide.
The perfect weight, stretch, softness of hand ratio.
Ponte is a thick, double knit fabric design produced on double jersey (Rib or Interlock) knitting machines. It is one of the firm, stable structures of knits with a subtle sheen. This fabric is heavier and thicker than a regular jersey and it lasts until the goes come home.
As one blogger put it: “Ponte is the perfect fabric to have a transformation from elegant to casual”.
Some patterns to exemplify that vibe of multi-occasion garments include the Mason Knit Jacket from Style Arc Patterns – oh what a great garment to make.
Also, try the Ines Knit dress, also from Style Arc Patterns – they have the ponte fabric patterns down pat.
Fabric Appropriate for also a wide range of Shirts/Tunics, straight pants or pleated skirts, wrap dresses – also jumpsuits. Try (again from Style Arc) the Carly Jumpsuit – which you may have to buy second hand because it is unavailable.
Finally a Tunic from Katherine Tilton – a semi fitted pull over – Butterick B6492
