Winter Weight Zazzle Shirts for Layering

When it comes to dressing for the winter season you will want to layer with clothing that is intended for cool to cold days.

I recommend a heavyweight long sleeve t-shirt that is made with at least 6 ounces of cotton to be worn as your first layer. Then a comfortable loose fitted flannel shirt, sweatshirt or fleece top would be worn over your first layer. When you dress in two layers this look is fashionable when worn with jeans, and leggings. A casual comfortable look that will keep you warmer on cool to cold days.

All of this sounds great until you have to shop for a heavyweight cotton long-sleeved t-shirt. They are easy to find in the menswear department but not so easy for women to find a basic 6-ounce cotton t-shirt. You can spend the day at the mall and not find what you are looking for. There are plenty of fashion long sleeve shirts that will not keep you warm. 

I found quality made cotton shirts at that are perfect for cool weather.  They have preshrunk 6.0 ounce 100 percent cotton shirt is a must-have. When you put it on you will notice that the fabric feels soft on your skin and that it is heavier cotton, not see through like others. You will feel warm when the house is cool and when you wear this shirt with another layer outdoors you will appreciate the feeling of warmth.

Layering will keep you Warmer in Winter

When the weather turns colder you will want to wear three layers of clothing. I would recommend wearing a 6-ounce cotton long-sleeved shirt worn as your first layer then the winter weight long-sleeve flannel shirt or fleece sweatshirt worn as the 2nd layer then your outerwear should be a hoodie. Know that I wear outfits like this and I feel comfortable in 30 degrees. For colder weather, you should wear outerwear/coat that provides better insulation.

I know you will love these heavyweight shirts and sweatshirts and that they will become your favorites because they are soft on your skin, quality made and will keep you warm.

Here are a few cool-weather shirt designs. All are made from heavyweight cotton. You can buy the tee as shown with designers image or make your own from uploading your photograph.

Care Instructions

I recommend that you launder the shirt in cold water permanent press cycle then dry shirt in delicate cycle, remove from dryer when the shirt is damp, shake before hanging, finish with air dry. By doing this your shirt will look “new” longer.

Zazzle Toddler Girl Sunflower Shirt Review

For the last year, I have been designed baby and toddler clothing at I really like the styles and the fabric but was not sure of the sizes. So I asked a friend of mine if I could send her one of my baby fashion tees to determine the size and to learn more about the product.

She agreed to help me. Her daughter wore a size 2T perfectly in other brands. When it came to the sizes at the 2T was a size too big. Even when the shirt was laundered the shrinkage was minimum.

Since the size was too big I asked my friend if she would like to try the 24 months size. At first, she thought it would be too small, then agreed because it was the best way to find out how the toddler t-shirts fit.

The size 24 months t-shirt fit her toddler girl perfectly. This tells me that the t-shirts for toddlers run big and if you want a perfect fit that you should size down when buying.

Here are some photos of the sunflower shirt, this is a size 24 months. The shirt is not too tight if fits this toddler perfectly.

Even after a long day at the park, the tee is not wrinkled

Know that the sunflower tee was laundered in the delicate cycle, then put in the dryer under air-dry followed by hanging to completely dry. The color in the print did not fade, in fact, I was told that it laundered beautifully and that it looked new.

This sunflower toddler tee allows you to add your child’s name. My friend's daughter loves that her name is on her shirt and she also likes red ladybugs.
