made from scrap fabric and an extra plain black t-shirt. i feel like it is missing something, but i don't know what. the lace is not part of the shirt (i didn't make the lacy thing either).








comments? suggestions? i'd love to hear them!

I think it looks good like it is, but maybe you think it's missing a pocket up front like a hoodie sweatshirt?

I really like the way the neckline flows into the hood!
The suggestion of a pocket was good - I would suggest maybe 2 side pockets instead, maybe red edged - I know I wear a hoodie with pockets so often that if I'm wearing a regular sweater I always find myself absent mindedly trying to put my hands into non-existent pockets  Tongue

I think it looks good the way it is: nice and architectural without being busy.  More pockets and stuff would just fuss it up (plus those front pockets always end up saggy).  The hood, lace, and tabs are plenty of details (and probably as much as that fabric can structurally hold).

To quote Coco Chanel "When accessorizing, always take off the last thing you put on."  I'd say that applies to making clothing too. 

I really like it the way it is.

thanks for all the feedback! I do like the idea of pockets, but like marieC said they might turn out like those ugly stretched out looking pockets (and with my luck, that's what they'll be). I'm so glad you all like it! It makes me really happy.

Beautiful combination of colors. And sweet details  Smiley
It looks great when worn with lace - great idea!

I'd go for the pockets, you can just do them easy peasy, and they would definitely look nice!
(and if they turn out saggy just take em of and try again)
