It's quite easy and you only have to sew one long seam. I didn't actually sew the hem because the sweatshirt was non-fray. I cut it up the front and then cut a semi-circle with the radius ending at the armpit. This is quite hard to explain so here is a diagram:
The red line is where you cut. The centre cut is in the front only. When it's done, you should be able to lay it flat in a circle shape.
Then you just add some embellishment et voila! This is quite a nice length, it's a good coverup for summer tanks and sleeveless blouses.
- I might still add a button or some additional ribbon at the neck to keep it closed at the neck
- Next time I think I'll look for a tweedy sweater or something because Big J thinks it looks like some sort of religious frock.
- I also might try with a bigger size, maybe a men's raglan sleeve sweater - not sure how to handle the unravelling though. More sewing?
