So my lovely boyfriend had two black hoodies that the sleeves didnt fit right on so he gladly passed them onto me for recons! Yay! So this is what I came up with after taking them apart and resizing for a more girl look. As my bf is an XL and I'm a S lol.

The first I added laces on the front with star eyelets and used an old sweater of mine for the sleeves and bottom band. I also put some around the nextline for added warminess. The liner of the hood is a red polkadot fabric with some more of the sweater. The back is a painted girly skull with a fabric bow. I love the back and how it turned out. I started out with the freezer paper stencil then added detail like the bones and highlights. Next is the same deal, recon of bf's old hoodie. He's in a band so I painted their logo on white fabric and stitched it on the back. Then I added a lil hawk on the hood for the added punk look lol since its a punk band and all. I still might add some details to it as time goes on. I had a pick as the zipper pull but it fell off at the last show I was at lol. The last hoodie is just a resize of a men's walmart hoodie. It's super warm cuz its lined with that fake lambs wool stuff. Then I added zebra stars and some studs on the bottom.

Never tempt a craft nerd with the joke of a cape request, as a cape will be made and will be worn.

Love them!  The lacing is fantastic.  I really like random things like that on shirts.  Smiley
