I had this GIANT sweatshirt I used to wear ALL the time. It was really unflattering.



Seriously, 2XL. Scary, huh?

Anyways, I slimmed it down, and got this:



Just took off the sleeves, put the thing on inside out, figured out how skinny I wanted it, and sewed it up and cut off the excess. Then I slimmed down the arms so they'd fit the new, smaller armholes and sewed them back on. I didn't do anything to the hood or neck.

Long fitted sweatshirts are my heaven. You could add some applique/accessories for some flare or just leave it black and classy.

Thanks guys!

Yeah, I used to like it huge, but the last time I wore it like that, I just felt awkward.

I think I will leave it black, I'm sort of boring and plain like that. The thing is, I know if I leave it like this, I'll wear it lots, but if I add to it, it's much more likely I'll wear it a couple times and get sick of it.

Ahhh, the first picture is in my horribly messy crafting room, and the second is in my living room. But thanks!
