                                                  Ponte is the most magical of fabrics – it has enough weight to keep you warm, enough structure to flatter your figure and enough soft stretch to keep you comfortable. All. Day. Long. Add a luxurious velvet trim and this is pretty much the gold standard of day-to-night dresses.
