I'm pretty sure it was so cheap because there were two holes in the front. It also fit very oddly.
I decided to convert it to an oversized cardigan, because I couldn't wear it as-is.
First I cut down the middle of the front of the sweatshirt.
Then I measured two inches all the way down on both sides. That was enough for the holes to be hidden and the V at the top of the sweatshirt to be hidden.
I folded over the two inches and pinned all the way down.
Then I folded that under itself in half so it would make a nice, clean hem.
Then I sewed the hem with a straight stitch.
Nice, clean hem!
Here's the final product:
My husband said it looked like something from Urban Outfitters......so that pretty much means it still looks 80s. But I like it! I've thought about sewing some chunky buttons on it or some other type of frill. What do you think?
