So, I had this black velour hoodie with a big white paint blob on... and a skirt that I love, but that was too big for me. I paired them up, added a wide black belt, and the result:



I literally just chopped the hoodie straight across just under the bust, and stitched the skirt onto it - I did nothing to the skirt at all, so if I change my mind and want to use it as a skirt again at some point, all I have to do is take my seam ripper and get rid of the hoodie. Oh, and alter the skirt to fit my new slimmer self.

There you have it - a fast and super duper easy refashion project!
