Time for "Soft Cozies"


As the days turn chilly in Western New York,
it's time for "Soft Cozies"
...the name my nieces give to the various fleece tops
I design and sew for them this season, every year.

This Lilac fleece "swing" tunic features a curved bodice seam that is decoratively top-stitched and adorned with sweet flower shaped shell buttons. Starting with an Ottobre pattern, I liberally made design changes to suit the soft flowing look that I wanted this garment to have.

What a neat shirt! I bet your niece will love it.

What kind of fleece do you use?

Hi Lisa....This particular fleece came from deep in my fabric-stash...so it is probably Malden Mills. However, I have had marvelous results with the "anti-pill" fleece from the chain stores in recent years..it lasts through an entire season of washing and keeps looking good. Good enough for 7 and 9 year-olds who are quite picky about how they look, LOL!

Darling top, and the topstitching is the perfect touch. I think it's Soft Cozy time here, too!

That is absolutely adorable! Can you tell me which Ottobre pattern you used to start from? I've got to go dig through my magazines!
