Rebecca Page - Comfy Town Blog Tour



Welcome to Rebecca Page Comfy Town blog tour.  


I am very excited by this blog tour theme. In my corner of the world the snow has already covered the grass and the kids already built their first snowman. Just because it’s cold outside doesn’t mean we cannot stay cute and cozy.



I had so many ideas for this blog tour, I decided to settle on a few key pieces for my princess! 




The first item is the Child’s Pippa Pants* pattern.  This super comfy stretch pants was perfect for showing off this cute knit print. This organic relief knit jacquard (Polar Bears, taupe) is a little heavier than your regular cotton knit.  Perfect for those cooler days.



I love how quick sew those pants are, no side seams.  This is my third pairs of Pippa pants for my princess.  This time, I went up one size to get the comfy style I was looking for but I needed to do something with the waist band which was too big on her.  This pattern doesn’t call for an elastic but I inserted a 1.5” wide knit elastic in the waist band to adjust that. 



My second key piece is the Cora Cocoon cardigan* in a French Terry.  Another quick sew.  The Cora Cocoon is a fun cardigan to keep you warm and cozy during those cooler days.  I used French Terry for the sleeve as well, making them slimmer.  Keep in mind that French Terry has less stretch than jersey knit or ribbing.  You can find my cozy ladies version here.



The final piece of this outfit is the classic tee for girls from Love Notions*.  I was originally hoping to use the new Strappy cami but she's still too small. Hint Hint we need a girls version!

I used a modal jersey knit which drapes beautifully.  Modal fibers create a silky soft fabric making it the perfect choice for Comfy Town outfit.  All fabrics used in this project came from L'Oiseau Fabric.



This Pippa Pants and Cora Cocoon patterns are available in child, dolls and ladies version.  This project is perfect for beginner sewistas, I have another pair of Pippa Pants cut in the same fabric for me and I made a little surprise for my Princess that she has not seen yet, psst don't tell her!
