Pattern Review: Simplicity 1324 and Black and White Graphic Ponte Knit

What wonderful fabric this is (Black and White Graphic Ponte Knit). I love the nubby texture and the random black wiggles!  I’ve sewn with Pontes for ages but never seen one quite like this! I used Simplicity 1324 for the skirt and the top, which almost gives it a one piece look although the top will work with black pants.  A word of warning:  The pattern for the skirt is huge!  Perhaps because I used this knit with a good bit of stretch although the pattern calls for a woven.  It sews up just fine in a knit but I had to go down a size and then take in the sides some more.

Thank you Cissie!  This was a great marriage of pattern and fabric.  I need that skirt pattern…..
