I did a little sweatshirt remake this week taking an overly accented sweatshirt with ribbon and turning it into a tube top! Heidi also worked some sweatshirt magic…check it out.
I was in desperate need of some work-out gear. The problem...I haven't bought a sweatshirt since 1995 as you can see from the pic. This is one of those ubiquitous, huge, floppy sweatshirts that look awful on everyone, especially curvy girls like me.
I started by removing the bottom band and then marked my measurements and a center line for the zipper.
After cutting and sewing the body, I marked new armholes on the gargantuan sleeves and trimmed and sewed them as well.
I wanted to make a thumb hole at the cuff, but they were too short so after attaching the sleeves, I cut open the center line, added the zipper (my zipper skills need work!) and tucked the edges of the top collar.
It was sew time for Heidi!
Voila, ready for a jog!"
Rock the new hoodie Heidi! I love DIY workout gear!! Anyone else crafting their own gym ensembles? They were giving away t-shirts from a new class I took this week and I think I'm going to sass mine up a bit! Keep it up, girl!!
