OK, it might not be ponte, maybe it is a double knit??? The fabric was bought from Gorgeous Fabrics yonks ago so I cannot remember what the blend is. However it is lovely and drapey with a gorgeous stripe/texture to it. It worked really well for this pattern - Vogue 8795 a Marcy Tilton pattern for a lovely relaxed shape jacket with a really interesting front detail/collar thing going on.
Not much to say, I shortened the sleeves (maybe not by enough?) but otherwise it is true to the pattern. Photos follow. Credits for the photos to my buddy Kelley taken on a field trip to New Farm/Fortitude Valley which has a great fabric store and a great yarn store. I bought heaps but have no photos of that.
Photos now - tell me what you think of the style...
Ciao kittens... more soon!
