DIY - plain sweatshirt makeover

 I bought a cheap plain black sweatshirt for Julian 
for his Halloween costume in case it got cold.   It was worn for about an hour.

 It hasn't been touched since, so I wanted to change it up a little.  
It is more Ella's size so I decided to make it over for her.

This is what I did.

That's it.  
Super simple.  
I'm not in love with how the collar turned out, but it will do for now.  
I only sewed the top and tacked the tip of the collar down so it would be pretty easy to change out. 
I wanted more of a peter pan collar.
It looks a little Amish to me, but she didn't seem to mind.

I have an itch to sew right now.


  1. Cute! The sweatshirt will be great for Valentine's Day and beyond.


Thanks for stopping by!
