All you need is a needle, thread, some fabric, and these step by step instructions to start sewing.
You Will Need
- A hooded sweatshirt
- A flat surface
Use an old sweatshirt
Use an old hooded sweatshirt, which will look more natural with a little wear and tear. If it's new, wash and dry it a few times for a broken-in feel.
Lay it out
Lay it out on a flat surface like a table or a floor.
Find the center where the two sides of the neck meet and overlap slightly. Separate the two sides so you can cut directly in the middle.
Cut a slit
Cut a small slit, about a half inch long, straight down from the center. Try it on to see if it's still too tight or if the hood doesn't lay flat.
Make a tear
Make a small tear to extend the cut for a more deconstructed or vintage look with slightly frayed edges.
