Solid Ponte De Roma Knit Crimson
Good basic fabric, but nothing special
I sewed a dress out of this fabric. The dress was not particularly tight but needed to be lined when using this fabric. I wish the fabric was a little heavier. I would classify it as medium-weight, certainly not heavy-weight. I was able to pleat the fabric fairly nicely. I like the color, as it is not an orangey-red, but rather a deep red. One word of caution: Even after a heavy wash in warm water, the color still bled onto my dress lining and ironing board when I used an iron on the fabric. It no longer bleeds after a second wash.

be aware of the color!
This is great quality jersey knit but it is not maroon as I thought it was from the picture. It is a very blatant red, and I do not like red clothes.
