So I’m FINALLY blogging about this super cozy sweatshirt I made with speckled sweatshirt fleece from D and H Fabrics last year. I LOVE the shape of this top (so swingy yes!?)
My wardrobe was seriously lacking in cozy tops for winter. I’ve had my eye on the Hazelwood pattern from Tessuti fabrics since it was released. Y’all know how I love a swingy silhouette. The pattern features a turtleneck, slightly cropped length, an A-line shape, and sleeve & hame facings. It was a super quick sew with easy instructions. My first Tessuti make but it won’t be my last. I think their patterns have great style lines and are a great source for elevated basics.
This black flecked sweatshirt fleece from D and H Fabrics is Oeko-Tex certified and imported from the Netherlands. I love love love the quality of this fabric! And the black with super subtle colorful flecks is so perfect for me. Its like I’m trying to be sleek and subtle with black but I juuuuuussstttt gotta squeeze some color in there. Unfortunately this color is sold out but she does still have the mint which was actually my second favorite option! (Not to mention all the other great knits in her collection – if I wasn’t on a year long buying ban that rust micro rib would be mine!!!)
I don’t have much else to say about this make as the pattern was pretty straight forward. I made no adjustments to the fit or style lines. So for the rest of this post I guess I’ll just let the pictures speak for themselves!
