Lilac Ponte Roma
Ponte Roma (or just 'Ponte' to its friends) is a great choice when you want a crisp, structured look while still maintaining the stretch and comfort of a knit fabric. It is also perfect for anyone who is new to sewing with knits as it doesn't curl up like a jersey and it holds its shape well. The more experienced sewist may want to use this Ponte in place of a woven fabric.
If you've ever looked at a dress in a Boden catalogue and thought "That looks smart but also incredibly comfy", it was probably made of Ponte.
This Ponte has relatively high viscose and elastane percentages so your garment will have a high end feel to it, as well as fantastic comfort and recovery. Not all Pontes are created equal and we are confident you will be impressed by this one.
Patterns we would recommend include the Emma Dress by Sew Over It (see Laura's here) and the Blackwood Cardigan by Helen's Closet.
