Jersey - Ponte
Ponte, or Ponte de Roma as some refer to it is a medium-heavy weight knitted double jersey, often strong and with a good stretch.
You can use ponte for many dressmaking purposes, such as dresses, skirts, jackets, trousers, tops and cardigans.
Ponte is also useful in instances such as in place of cuffing for hip and neck bands on sweatshirts and jogging bottoms, as well as for comfortable over-belly bands on maternity trousers. Many people have been using the ponte fabrics for sleeves on sweatshirts - simply use a patterned heavy jersey or scuba fabric for the front and match the sleeves accordingly for the perfect Linden sweater.
