Now, I know not all of us are 5’10” underweight modelesque types, but those who do happen to be tall and lanky, we face a HUGE problem- everything is either too wide and/or too short. Shopping can be a miserable experience for us some days- no joke!
But I absolutely love thrift shopping…. I view it as a search for my next punky DIY project.
I found this cute hoodie by Raw Blue a while back, marked for $5 [USD], but the zipper was broken.. so I talked them down to $2.50. That’s a price I just can’t argue with, despite the arms being slightly too short. I can modify this to become something all my own! 😀
The obvious decision is to just cut the sleeves off. Right? Vest hoodies are ‘in’… at least, I think so!
Just be sure to:
1) cut OUTSIDE the hem, and
2) don’t worry too much about it being perfect- a little ‘scruff’ on the edges is cool!
I saved the material from the sleeves for further DIY projects. You never know when you may need it!
Super easy, right??
ATTENTION BANDS, ARTISTS, ETC!!!
Help me finish this project!
As you can see, I’ve added two pins to the pocket area.. but it’s still so bare….
I’m looking for small button pins, patches, etc. to add to my super-awesome hoodie vest! If you support my project [and want a ton of PR], consider sending a little something [it’s cheap!] to add to my hoodie! Contact me and I will give you my mailing address. I would totally appreciate it! <3
