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.
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….

Really like the way this looks! Maybe you can do one for me when I come. Eleven more days!!!!!!!!!
Does that mean you’ll go thrifting with me?!
I like this Nicole, but then I like everything that you make or remake.
You are the only person in the world who can make that look so good…It actually makes me laugh to picture myself in this outfit :) Great job Nicole!
You’re funny, Mary!
