This double jersey fabric is closely knitted in a fine gauge polyester with elastane, a stable fabric that will hold its shape extremely well. It has lots of body and has an extremely good widthwise stretch with no length stretch. Eggplant 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 an amazing width wise stretch plus a slight lengthwise stretch.
This is a really versatile fabric suitable for a host of dressmaking projects. We can see Eggplant Ponte being used for dresses (bodycon, 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.
