In a few short weeks I am off to Quilt Market , international tradeshow to promote my new book Sweatshirt Remix. That involves my one woman show of stripping garments off and on while I talk and walk. The sweatshirt is a comfortable garment no question but as far as flattering to a woman's shape not at all. Dropped shoulders, excess fabric through the middle and a band that usually cuts the body in a place where no cut should be allowed. However it has much potential for being reborn as both comfortable and fun or stylish to wear. I was interested in embellishing the sweatshirt but much more about structure techniques for better fit. Both books SWEATSHIRTS and Sweatshirt Remix include techniques and guides to create seaming details to the body and shoulders of the sweatshirt. Today being Thrifty Thursday and restyling a sweatshirt is a thrifty project I am showcasing a design from the book, Daisy Crop Jacket which used some wool felt scraps and a couple tea towels for the collar and trim. If you do not sew Beacon's Fabri-tac glue will allow you to create the same look.
