Sweatshirt With a Twist

Hello Everyone!


Here is a sweatshirt with a little twist!

After:

The Twist? A panel of damask in the front, no bottom rib, and no terrycloth! But, I still consider it a sweatshirt. At least it still feels as comfy as a sweatshirt.

.

The inspiration was this little article about "Luxe Sweatshirts." I love a sweatshirt just like everyone else, and why not make it "LUXE?"

Once I found this piece of damask fabric for $1 and the unused man's shirt below, I knew I had a match.

Mary,

I attempted to comment on your blog but got a message stating I didn't have permission to be there. Here's my comment:

What clever information and tips you've shared... and always share! It's too hot to wear sweatshirts here in the Pacific, but I could certainly accommodate these tips with a T-shirt, now, couldn't I?

Your sweatshirt is adorably LUXE indeed!

Happy refashioning,
Kelley~
