The Cozy Sweatshirt Dress

Hello Refashion Co-op. This cozy sweatshirt dress was handed down to me and I thought it would be great for cooler days. But it was too big and baggy.

I used my dress form to pin the sides and make it more fitted in the arms and shoulders. I was going for more of an A-line shape with 3/4 length sleeves.

I cut off the excess. I lost the pockets in the process. I was sorry to see them go but they weren't large enough to hold much anyway. I left the bottom part of the dress as full as possible.

I like this dress a lot. It is casual and comfortable but I could dress it up too.

Thanks for reading, for more details and pictures go to I Can Work With That.

Cute dress! Looks cozy. I can't tell if it is gray or light blue, though.

Thanks Amy Jo! It is actually in between gray and blue. Sort of slate colored.

Great alteration to make it wearable!
