Once again, I started out with a sweatshirt that was too big on me and set about to give it some shape.
I started by removing the front pockets and the zipper through a lot of careful, tedious seam-ripping.
I stitched the zipper edge back together once the zipper was removed. Then I set about taking in the sides a bit. I basted it where I thought it needed to be stitched then used my serger to finish the seam. Alas, these pictures only show the first round of taking in the sides - a second round was also needed.
Once it was finally slim enough, I added some large buttonholes to the left front flap and folded under the right front flap at an angle before adding my big red buttons.
And here it is - warm and cozy.
With this up and down weather, I'm sure to get some good use out of it before it gets too hot. Yay!
