Sweatshirt Refashion

After seeing this amazing sweatshirt refashion here, I decided I had to make it.  Around the same time, Shannon made one too!  I followed the tutorial exactly how it is written, but there are a few things I would change when making it again - and I will make it again since it was easy, cute, and simple to add your own touch to.

I used a long sleeve t-shirt that I loved the fit of to base my sweatshirt refashion out of.  Turns out, I forgot that sweatshirt material doesn't stretch as easily as t-shirt material.  Duh, right?!  I will definitely make the sleeves wider next time so they aren't so tight on my arms.  I also added a little ruffle to the edge.  I did this because, again, I wasn't thinking about how the material would lay differently and needed some extra fabric in front.  I like the "mistake" though.  

It would be so simple to add your own touch to this by changing the color of the sweatshirt, ruffling the edges, adding flowers, whatever fits you.  I like this one plain and simple, but I can't wait to make another one to see what else I can come up with!

The BF and I took a drive the other day to enjoy the sunshine and to take some shots of some clothes with different scenery then my neighborhood.  It was SUPER windy, so please ignore my crazy hair!  It's about the clothes anyway, right?

Here is Shannon's sweatshirt refashion using a thrifted Old Navy blue sweatshirt.:
