Not just another sweatshirt

Lauren-Sweatshirt-FMwI wear my first sweatshirt refashion so much I decided to tackle another. I started with a very small Ralph Lauren sweatshirt with an awesome military collar. I took the back off again and added it to the front. This time there wasn’t enough fabric in the original sweatshirt to allow for princess seams, but I cut the sweatshirt in a triangle with the smallest part aligning with the collar shape. I think it still has a slimming line on top.

Lauren-Sweatshirt-OMwWhen I tried it on it was still too small on top. Aha, a GDO! (good design opportunity). I took the fabric from the sleeves and added a triangular gusset under the arms. I like the detail it adds to the garment.

  1. I really like your work. The way you’ve combined two fabrics to me is a real refashion; creating something different! I wish I had the eye and the skill.
