Before I write anything else, I want to make it very clear that I didn't make this myself... it was in a pile of hand-me-downs from my cousin, with a Japan-based label I haven't heard of, and I simply thought it'd be good inspiration for other Craftsters. If this isn't appropriate to have up, then I'll gladly let the admins take it off.

So apparently, the creator of this garment took a hoodie and a pair of zipperless jeans, and cut them about 3.5 in./9 cm down from where they start, and then flipped that upside down and sewed it to the hoodie. Here are photos:

I don't know if this would happen with all jeans, but the circumference didn't match that of the hoodie, so the maker added velcro to the denim that stuck out.

Wow! what a cute and original idea!
I really like it. I plan to make my own hoodie, and was thinking of what embellishments i should put on. I think i might have found one! Will post pics.

i think itd be way cuter if the jeans were right side up... esp if they were button fly jeans Smiley it'd be like a fake out... like 'oooh my hoodie is tucked into my jeans.... WAIT NO ITS NOT!'

hmm... maybe i should prove this theory Smiley

Let's be spies...

and wear interesting hats!

It's a very creative idea! I haven't ever seen anything like it, but it's neat!
