Welcome another lighter colourway of our regular ponte Roma range! This pale blue ponte Roma jersey fabric is a beautiful clear shade of pale blue; almost an ice blue but with a little more saturation and no leaning towards a duck-egg whatsoever. We think it will be a favourite for those layers that we still need in cooler weather, whilst lifting the spirits of both you and your wardrobe. Combine it with clean-cut whites, denim, dark red or other pastel colours to keep your outlook clear and bright.
What kind of fabric is this?
Our pale blue ponte Roma jersey fabric is the usual combination of polyester, viscose and spandex that you’d expect to find in a ponte Roma jersey. As doubleknits go, and as is the case with the rest of our regular ponte Roma stock range, this is a fairly draping ponte Roma jersey, though not without a little structure too. You can find our more about ponte Roma jersey fabrics in this blog post.
What does this fabric feel like?
Despite its evident substance, this remains a soft, smooth and pliable doubleknit which will be beautifully comfortable next to the skin due to the viscose content and the smooth knit pattern. As you might expect, it’s a very stable fabric and easy to work with.
How does this fabric move?
Our pale blue ponte Roma jersey fabric falls into rounded folds and has a resilient stretch-and-return. The stretch across the width is around the 40% mark with about 5% ease down its length. You can see how it moves and stretches in this video.

Will I need to line this fabric?
We’d be more than happy to recommend this fabric for unlined garments, including those with ‘waterfall’ fronts where both sides of the fabric are designed to be visible. Its smooth finish means that it would also be comfortable if worn next to the skin. A lining wouldn’t be required for any of these options, or for purposes of modesty, since this is a closely-knit fabric with excellent opacity for its weight. For any yoga enthusiasts amongst you, it should pass the ‘downward dog’ test without causing any gasps from people on surrounding mats…
What can I make with this fabric?
Tops, tunics, A-line dresses and lighter-weight outerwear too are all options for this pale blue structured ponte Roma jersey fabric. We think it’s a tremendously versatile fabric. It will also work particularly well as an unlined jacket or blazer, particularly where a little shape is required. We love the ‘Roxy’ Jumper from Sew Over It, especially the sleeve length and the fitted shape which elevate the sweatshirt style.
