When I was working at camp, each summer we would get t-shirts and hoodies printed up. Annoyingly, the last summer I was there the screen printing place couldn't get the same brand of hoodies which we'd always used and the new brand had some "interesting" ideas about sizing. Translation: these things were HUGE. I like my sweaters on the big n' snuggly side usually, but this was pretty much unwearable because it was so boxy. I've been meaning to [literally] cut it down to size for ages, but between watching Stephen Fry being fabulous as Oscar Wilde and Sarah Jessica Parker strutting around Manhattan as Carrie Bradshaw, I finally got off my patootie and fixed it this morning.

woke up this morning looking like this...

Much cuter, and instead of just taking up room in my closet I will actually wear this now.

Very nice.  It would be a shame to throw out something like that but it looks as if it was quite  complicated to make smaller. Well done.

That's looks awesome! I wish I had the time and patience to do that to one of mine...
