Sweat(shirt)er

Yep, that’s right. Sweatshirt + sweater = Sweat(shirt)er. I’m bringing my A-game today.

Back with another sweatshirt project today. I love working with sweatshirts because they’re so soft and comfy, and because you don’t have to hem them.

So one day, I was getting dressed, thinking, “I wish I had a little short sleeved gray sweater to layer with today.” I was going to add it to my thrift wish list when I remembered a big gray sweatshirt I had thrifted a few weeks before.

I grabbed it out of my closet and got to work chopping it up.

First I chopped off the hem.

Then I chopped off the sleeves. I tried it on and didn’t like the length, so I chopped off some more.

I wanted to keep the sleeves a little on the long side so I could roll them up.

I like the sweat(shirt)er layered over a button-up.

I love the boxy shape.

But then, a few days later, I was working on another chopping project (stay tuned), and decided to chop the sleeves of the sweatshirt again, too.

Perfect.

I’m not exaggerating when I say this is my new favorite shirt. I wore it two days in a row. I’m pretty sure I saw the same people, too.

And so simple. At $1.00 a pop, it’s a quick and cheap project. I think I’ll go make another one right now….
