Am I the only sewing blogger that gets inspired to make something comfy while I'm sitting around in my house in my mis-matched pajamas feeling sick? Seriously... something might be wrong with me. I still want to look cute WHILE having a stomach bug, AFTER I've been to the ER, and AFTER puking my guts out. I know... I'm crazy! This explains this sweatshirt refashion with NO tutorial. (Not as much energy as normal).
Just before and After photos for your musing...
And the AFTER...
I drew inspiration for this refashion from a shirt that I bought while I studied abroad in Spain. Unfortunately it's a little tight now and has discolored pit stains (gross again, but real, folks), so it has been retired in the refashion pile for a little while.
Afuera de la Palacia Royal en Madrid, Espana, 2007
It's got the usual "Vanessa" shirt attributes:
"Raglan" type sleeve
Basics: I was able to seam rip the shirt apart and use it somewhat as pattern pieces for the sweatshirt, but going from a knit shirt to a sweatshirt, I gave myself added room when cutting by about 1 inch around my pattern pieces. I also used another sweatshirt for cutting some of the yoke pieces, that I had on hand, because mine was more like a "Large" than an "XL" or "XXL".
I love slightly puffed sleeves or "gathered" if you will.
I also did a close understitch around the bib yoke neckline. Simple details.
Back View... never like the "butt" views, but you must see, I know.
So there ya have it folks! A Sweatshirt Refashion by me! Goes with PJs or cute cords!
Thanks for reading! Oh, and my disqus has been weird lately, so if you leave a comment, I DO usually respond, so sorry if you've left one and for some reason I didn't get it! Gracias!
