Does anyone know how, have a pattern, know a website, can teach me …. how to take a hooded sweatshirt that chocks me and open it up and either put a zipper in it or at least open it up and have it look nice.

I did one a long time ago by just slicing it opened and sewing in a placket but it really didn’t look that great.

I love sweatshirts, in fact I wear one just about every day in the bus because you know that door opens and closes 50+ times a trip and out goes my heat each time.

I’ve been looking at pinterest a lot and have found a couple sorta ideas but not exactly what I’m looking for. I’ll keep looking but thought just maybe one of you guys have done this and have a pattern or something to share with me.

Hope that all is well with you. No school here tomorrow so I have daycare. It’s Abby’s birthday next week so we are celebrating it tomorrow. She wants pancakes for breakfast, spaghetti for lunch, chocolate cupcakes and the activity….ice skating. I’ll share pictures.

Take care my friends. Have a blessed night sleep.


This is kind of what I have…$_12.JPG?set_id=880000500F

Good luck with this. I understand why a zipper would be a good idea.

I could not wear a sweatshirt without a zipper! I would feeltrapped.

I've never made a sweatshirt, although it is on my list of things to learn to do one day, so I'm no help. But I hope you found something. :)
