A Hoodie Makeover

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!! I knew a Hoodie Makeover was just what I wanted to make.

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!

Cute huh? But I wanted to add a bit more pattern and color to it.

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!!

    Gorgeous Bonnie! LOVE love love the orange with the grey. Fabulous job. If the ruffles don’t like you, I would suggest just making them smaller….maybe only cut the fabric 2″ so that they are just little ruffles. and maybe even just use one strip of fabric. I also did a pattern for sew hip magazine for hoodies without ruffles that also had the pockets lined…it’s rather easy. It was published in the June 2011 issue of Sew Hip magaine. Thanks for sharing! xo

    What a great way to spruce up a hoodie. I live in hoodies in the fall and winter, so I have several that could use makeovers. Thanks for the great idea.

    What a great idea! I have the perfect hoodie to transform, blah, boring and white. It needs some pizzaz. Thanks for the inspiration!
