Sweet Sweatshirt!

I took a hand me down men's size large sweatshirt and made a cuter one.

I didn't realize that a lot of sweatshirts don't have side seams. I cut out the design and cut the sweatshirt below the sleeves. I used one of Ansley's dresses as a width guide and to trace the sleeves. I had enough material to overlap the front. I like the asymmetry and the buttons.

Here's the original front of the sweatshirt:

  1. This is such a cute idea. You totally need to post a tutorial on it for those of us who are not smart enough to figure it out ourselves.

  2. yes a tutorial please, especially for the sleeve part, I am still a little intimidated by sleeves. Do you think a boy could pull this off? I think the big buttons are maybe too cutesy, what could I do, brainstorm with me please.
