I find myself with plans for NYE and nothing to wear. I have some black ponte knit in my stash which I feel would be perfect for Vogue 1328, but the pattern also calls for a lining and I haven't the foggiest what I should use. I was hoping to avoid buying anything additional to make my dress, and am wavering a bit. I have Butterick 5559 as well which also lists ponte as an option and has no lining, but I love the neck on the vogue design.

Anyway, I'd love some thoughts on lining ponte and any suggestions or feedback would be great.

I made a ponte jacket and lined it with a stretch mesh-type fabric...the kind of stuff you find in swim trunks or in the pockets of athletic wear (that's the only examples of where I've seen it...I'm sure it has a specific name but I'm clueless LOL). For my purpose I treated the 2 layers as one. I can probably post a pic if you like.

I would love to see a picture, if you had a chance to post it. It'll give me a visual reference while I'm at the fabric store.

It might just be called a mesh knit. Here you go:

That's my go-to lining choice for knits. It finishes edges and adds a faint suggestion of structure, without interfering with the knit fabric.

That was Patty. I just added the "me, too."

Karla, is it called 'mesh knit' or does it have a specific name? I don't even remember where I got that but I would like to get some more. Where do you get yours?

I'm fortunate to live near an great indie fabric store that has one room devoted to lycras for dance costumes; they carry this meshy stuff in quite a few colors...sometimes, even, the one I need.

Emmaonesock carries it in some basic colors, as power mesh stretch lining. and Spandex House in NYC has a huge selection. Solid color mesh.
Spandex House offers it in a lot of prints, too.

BTW, one designer has built a nice little business making clothing with this mesh. She layers it, gathers it, and creates light-as-air stuff that is very flattering. Sweet Pea I don't see any on her website now, but her little shop in NYC used to carry bikini and thong panties and camisoles made from it, too. My daughter was given a wonderful mesh nightgown made from this same stuff.
