I made this l piece last week after reading so many post on ponte knit, fortunately my local fabric store had a 50% off sale so I stocked up as many colors as I could find.
In one of the blog entries I read, someone mentions that quality of ponte depends on the Rayon content, which cam in handy shopping for ponte, all my new ponte contain at least 33% rayon. In the past I have bought expensive ones ($20/meter) with higher polyester percentage that I became so disappointed with how they turned out after one wear, I got these for $8 a meter...score hey!
Per the title I used two different patterns to make the dress, the following alterations were made: Reinforced the joint with twill tape, interfaced the neck and the sleeve then stitched down, just like so many people I don't like neck facing either.
Happy Sewing everyone, Happy Thanksgiving south of the border and enjoy the Black Friday sale everyone
