Functional Fleece Clothing

Here is a collection of fleece jackets and hoodies featuring several different functional and aesthetic design features!

I designed these jackets with a variety of functional features. I made jackets with detachable zip sleeves so they could be worn as vests, or the different colors of sleeves could be mixed and matched for different color-block looks. I made a jacket lined with a fleece patchwork made from scraps left from several other projects. I also made hoodies with hidden zipper pockets to keep valuable secure.
These fleece jackets are designed to have a relaxed, comfortable fit. The collection includes several different sleeve designs, including raglan sleeves, regular sleeves, and drop sleeves. Some jackets have hoods, some have collars, and some have both for extra warmth at the neck.

Jacket with fleece lining made from a patchwork of fleece scraps from other projects

I have been saving the scraps from fleece projects for several years, so I sewed the scraps into a patchwork piece to use for the jacket lining. I also used partial bobbins thread left over from previous projects. This is a large jacket designed to fit over other jackets. It is a very warm outer layer!
