Sweatshirt Fleece Mash-up with Jessica from genwin design co.

Hello everyone!  I’m Jessica from genwin design co. and I’m super pumped to share my first ever make using RCF’s AMAZING sweatshirt fleece fabric!

I chose the Tawny Brown and Charcoal Minimal Tree print because I was really drawn to the color and I’m obsessed with minimalistic prints.  I really wanted to make the perfect fall sweater and I really think I did!  I used two patterns from Sonia Estep Designs---the Rebekah and the Tennessee.  I mashed them together and added a few original touches.

The boatneck neckline is so flattering and the bishop sleeves are so dreamy!  I added a little volume to these sleeves because I wanted them to be extra puffy at the bottom.  At the hem, I really wanted a subtle asymmetrical side-split, so I changed up the bottom of the pattern to get just what I wanted.  I used Solid Charcoal French Terry for the cuffs as well as an optional sash!  I really love flowy tops, which is why I mashed the Rebekah with the Tennessee, but I also like adding a coordinating sash to a top or dress sometimes to really define the waist!

I think we both know that when it comes to adorable fabrics for kiddos, Raspberry Creek Fabrics is beyond compare. It’s totally easy to make coordinating pieces or capsule wardrobes, their prints are AH-dorable, and the CLUB cotton jersey and French terry are great bases for kiddos. I think sewing for the kids in your life is absolutely lovely — I try to do it as often as I can. But here are a few reasons why you might consider sewing for yourself and with RCF fabrics, too. I’m also including one of my favorite “grown-up” makes that shows that RCF really does have fabric options for everyone, kids and adults alike.
