More Fabulous Ponti
It was perfect timing to follow Lisa's earlier post on Janet's ponti knit jacket, with this ponti two-tone fitted Herve Leger inspired tank dress made by Sarah. Here Black and Ecru ponti were used ,a matt thickish knit perfect for this style dress. Not only does it sew up like a dream, it's suitable for a range of garments. Check out also what Katherine from Bloom Sews made in our Charcoal Marle ponti.
This multi pieced dress is Sarah's own pattern....she's quite the skilled patternmaker after 3 years spent studying at the Whitehouse Institute and has a real penchant for knits in particular. I'm sure there's a signature knitwear label on the horizon, sometime in the future, but for now we're happy to have her working with us at Tessuti.
