Ponte Roma - Dark Grey
Ponte Roma Jersey ( 76% Polyester 19% Viscose 5% Spandex) . 145cm wide . 265gsm
A beautiful medium weight fabric that would be suitable for structured garments whilst still draping well.
Jersey fabric is ideal for dressmaking; knitted rather than woven, 'jerseys' have a varying amount of stretch- some are very soft and others more structured. Suitable for tops, dresses, skirts, wrap garments and patterns that require all way stretch fabrics. Jersey dress patterns often require less pattern pieces and have a shorter construction process as they stretch to fit rather than requiring complex pattern piecing or darts. Ensure you are using the correct machine needles and stitches that stretch to ensure maximum success with your project.
Recommended Dress Patterns: Tilly & The Buttons- Zadie, Roma & Coco
Recommended Sewing Needles: Ballpoint (80)
Recommended Stitches: Zigzag/ stretch stitch (2.2-2.5)

I bought this fabric on recommendation from Lucy as she thought it would be ideal to make a hoodie and little jogging pants for my two year old grandson, she thought it would be versatile and hard wearing. I washed the fabric before cutting it out and it washed really well, it sewed like a dream, absolutely perfect for the little hoodie, really thrilled with this fabric and i can definitely recommend buying it from The Sewing Institute.
