BRRR!!! Baby it’s cold outside even in NC!! Really cold! This morning as I write this it is 11 degrees and tonight will be even colder. Thank God for the Fusion Leggings and CC off shoulder Cowl top. Both of these new patterns by Petite Stitchery & Company came just in time! Here you see I used a sweater knit for the CC top and the MOST YUMMY FABRIC from Zenith and Quasar ever. During this photo shoot I stayed nice and warm. It was sunny that day with a high of 32.
Let’s talk Leggings!
What is important in leggings pattern?
1. That it comes in a wide range of sizes? Yes!! This one does. The Fusion Leggings Pattern is available in sizes XS-4X I am wear the 1X ( for help in sizing I have a waist of 38.75 and hip of 49.5.)
2. That you can use your favorite 4 way stretch knit? Yes, you can use a variety of knits with 50% stretch both ways. Stretch Velvet, Athletic Brushed Poly, as I have used in the pink pair and the green/black pair, Cotton Lycra, as I have used in the floral pair, Stretch Corduroy, check out the tester photos on the pattern, Stretch Pleather and so many more!
3. That there are some cute details? Yes, The fusion Leggings have that covered too! Color Block the bottom leg for a dramatic look that, if you choose you can match to a detail on the top you choose. There is also a color block option for the curved butt flattering waistband. Yes, I get brave here and show that too! Because I love my blog readers! Kisses!!!
4. But The MOST important thing in a leggings pattern is FIT. They must fit well with the proper rise to stay put without the need for added elastic and without the tug, tug, tug on the waistband as you go throughout your day. Jennifer Jerimiah worked really hard to make this happen and she did, beautifully. All three pair of my leggings are my favorite. I can not choose, I love the fit, the style, the choice of color blocking or not.
Add to all that some fabulous topstitching and these leggings take leggings up a notch or two!!!
What’s better than finding the right the top to cover your bum and pair well with your new fusion leggings? Nothing…
PS & Co brings you the CC off the Shoulder Top.
Ladies, this is soooo cute, comfy and in a cozy sweater knit, so warm. Wear it off the shoulder, as a high shoulder, off one shoulder or a front facing cowl. All in one pattern!! SCORE!!
The easy to follow tutorial and construction make this cowl top a quick sew with a happy dance result!
Here I show you two versions. One in a print that I paired with my two-toned pink Fusion leggings and for some fun on this frigid day my fluffy pink hat and gloves. SO MUCH PINK!!! LOL!!
This is a super soft Brushed Sweater knit from Knit Pop Fabrics in The color she calls Denim. Paired again with my favorite Athletic Brushed Poly from Zenith and Quasar.
