A New Look For Puffy Paint Sweatshirts!


 These Puffy Paint Sweatshirts Can Be Found At Any Local Thrift Store. My Personal Fav's Are The Cat Sweatshirt, But I Did Find This Great Strawberry Sweatshirt That Worked Out Perfect!

         
 First Cut Both Sleeves Into A Cap Sleeve Leaving Extra Length To Roll The Hem

                                                        
   Then Remove The Waistband


Now Remove The Collar Band. Fashion Your New Neckline To Your Own Taste. For Mine I Took The Neckline Down An Extra Inch So I Could Wear It Off My Shoulder.

                                    
 Lastly, Roll The Sleeve Hem And Sew It Into Place. If The Sweatshirt Is Too Large You Can Always Sew Up The Side Seam. This Also Helps Make The Armhole Not So Gaping.

         
Thats It!


Tip: Because Sweatshirts Are Made From Jersey Knit, You Can Leave The Neckline And The Hem Unfinished. The Unfinished Edges Will Not Unravel Do To The Knit.
