A Hoodie Makeover…
August 29, 2011
WELL… let’s talk…
So, I had this fabulous idea for transforming a plain (but very cute) hoodie into something with ruffles and lots of color!! I just loved the look of these!!
Here’s where I messed up things changed a bit!
I started with a soft, cozy teal blue hoodie that I found at my favorite store, yes you guessed right..Target!
It is super soft and has a drawstring at the waist. The tutorial I was following used a more fitted hoodie without the drawstring at the waist and no drawstring in the hood….hmmm perhaps I should have considered that…
Anyway…after I lined the hood, I loved it! Really LOVED it!
Then I added the ruffles…well…let’s just say they did NOT love me !
Sooooo….out came the seam ripper and off with the ruffles!
But, never fear, I had another idea!
Remember…mine had drawstrings! I simply made tube casings out of the Anna Maria Horner fabric I used to line the hood. I have been hoarding , ummm, saving this fabric for something very unique!
I also replaced the drawstring at the waist with the same fabric. Since my assistant had to return to middle school, I have no full length photo!
I love the way it ended up turning out! Will I make one with ruffles you ask? Maybe with a more fitted hoodie, or maybe for my daughter!!
