This superb ponte double jersey fabric is knitted in a fine close gauge to produce a dense and super cosy fabric perfect for transitional garments and layering pieces you will return to year round.
Lonely Hearts Club - Brushed Ponte has a super cosy brushed back (in classic black). The face side of the fabric is knitted in the darkest navy tone (or even a blue black) and is printed with a design of tumbling hearts which feature a lovely emerald green.
Lonely Hearts Club - Brushed Ponte is super soft and cosy to touch, has excellent bounce back width wise stretch and a firm but less pronounced stretch to the length. Ponte double jersey fabrics are an ideal introduction to sewing with stretch (knitted) fabrics. They are more stable than single jersey, the edges don't curl and hardly fray and there are so many comfortable clothing choices you can make from them.
A brilliant book with patterns, hints and tips on construction and garments you will go back to again and again is Wendy Ward's A Beginners Guide to Sewing with Knitted Fabrics. The patterns in this book are all key pieces such as T-shirts, jogger pants, lounge pants, cardigans and simple dresses. All of these simple styles will make up beautifully in this fab brushed ponte.
Lonely Hearts Club will also make superb babies and children's clothing, ideal for cute tiered, ruffled dresses, leggings, jog pants, sweat shirts, hoodies, hats and also for the backing on fur blankets.
