made out of a shirt wayyy too big for me. (it was a medium just to show you how small I am.) anyway here's the result:






I'm rather proud of it for a first time doing something like this. I like the fit. Kind of wished I didn't use the side with the design on it though. grr.

I also decided to use a zipper since I love zipper detailing but it's not one that can be split apart like a hoodie. oh well.

also, the zipper doesn't like to stay flat. I had it in a package where it was folded in half and the fold won't go away. sorry about that.


Anyway, hope you liked it!
