This intense black double jersey fabric is closely knitted in a fine gauge polyester with elastane, a stable fabric that will hold its shape extremely well while boasting a slight lustrous sheen. It has lots of body and is very elastic too. Jet Black Ponte is soft to touch with a very fine, close ribbed surface and reverse - great for garments where the 'wrong' side is likely to be on show. It has a very good width wise stretch plus a fair lengthwise stretch.
This is a really versatile fabric suitable for a host of dressmaking projects. We can see Jet Black Ponte being used for dresses (body con, paneled, tunic-style and pinafores), skirts, jackets (bomber, biker or boxy), trousers (maybe jodhpur-style leggings, ski pants, Capri pants), tops (vests, sweatshirts and workout gear) and cardigans.
Extra uses include: in place of cuffing for hip and neck bands on sweatshirts, jogging bottoms, or for comfortable over-belly bands on maternity trousers.
