Petite Stitchery & Co. has two new patterns out, and they are so perfect together. I was so excited to be able to test both the C+C Off the Shoulder top and the Fusion leggings. So far I have already made two C+C tops and three leggings, and they are quickly becoming favorites in my wardrobe.
I made the Fusion leggings first, and I started with some beautiful sewing machine fabric that I have been saving from So Sew English. I did the waistband and bottom of the legs with a coordinating purple double brushed poly (DBP) from Knitpop.
The accents on these leggings make them so fun! I love the curve on the back of the waistband. These are from the first version in testing, and the back changed just slightly in testing. There is a little more of a curve in the pattern now.
I have this fun shirt that I made with heat transfer vinyl, and it went so well with my sewing machine leggings. It says “I just want to make pretty things.” You can get the free download from Pitter and Glink here.
You can see the updated curve of the back waistband in my second pair of Fusion leggings. These were made with some velvet and metallic knit from Sly Fox fabrics. While this may not be the most practical outfit for everyday, I just knew that these fabrics were perfect for these patterns!
I love the C+C off the shoulder top in this beautiful metallic knit fabric. I’m thinking that my husband needs to take me out for a date night so that I can wear this fun outfit!
The C+C Off the Shoulder top can be worn in quite a few ways: off the shoulder, with just one shoulder down, and pulled up as a cowl are some of the possibilities.
Finally, I used this really soft sweater knit from Girl Charlee to make another C+C top. It is so absolutely comfortable! I made some black Fusion leggings to go with it. I used black DBP from Knitpop for the main part of the leggings and black vegan leather from Girl Charlee for the accents. I wasn’t sure that the vegan leather would work for the entire waistband, so I just used it for the back piece. Having the DBP for the front of the waistband worked really well and the fit is great!
Recommendations: Make sure your fabrics have the appropriate stretch as indicated in the pattern. My vegan leather did not have as much stretch as the DPB, so I used the DBP for the front of my waistband.
