Afton Stripe Ponte
From a Southern California design studio, a fabulous quality ponte in gray and black crosswise stripes. 4 way stretch, soft to the touch, no rolling at the cut edge, easy to sew and wear. ideal for fall jackets, tops and T's, and PERFECT for V8799, my little zipper sweater-cardigan.
Pre-shrink by laundering on gentle and put in the dryer. After sewing, wash on gentle or by hand and air dry (I NEVER put my hand sewn clothes in the dryer, it wears them out more quickly than normal wear).
Ponte knits are designer workhorse fabrics. Defined as a stable double-knit fabric with stand-out stability and firmness thaté are perfect for tops and bottoms (t-shirts, jackets, pants, skirts). Ponte fabric has a subtle matte sheen and incredible soft drape . It looks the same on both sides, with a flat weave. Super easy to sew, a great starter knit if you don't have much sewing-with-knits experience. I don't recommend any seam finish, just leave the edge raw---and I like to use the raw edge as a design detail too.
