teachart - the body of these sweaters come from my thrifting adventures, and i made some clothes before this so i just came up with my own pattern based on my measurements. There's a lot of tutorials on the clothing (not reconstructed) board that can direct you in terms of how to make hoodies or tshirts. Hope that helps!

these look so snug and wonderful! I particularly like the second one. I would rock that everywhere.

You've done such a good job with these - the sweaters you chose and the shaping is awesome! I wish I could make such good finds to upcycle  Tongue
