I took a class on how to turn a sweatshirt into a jacket. Charlie gave me his old work sweatshirt and cut it all at the seams to place and sew fabrics on top. At times, this was really difficult, because the shirt was stretched out way too much. If I ever do that again, I would use a new sweatshirt, though I promised myself to not do that again. But who knows, I never seem to know where my interest leads me next and so I would not be surprised to begin another one, this time cutting it in the middle of the front to make a jacket, as the teacher wanted us to do. I did not want to go there with weirdly stretched fabric and so it remained a pullover jacket. Below, is the beginning of the back. The sleeves are still attached and I did have to cut them off eventually, because they would not lie flat when the whole thing was opened up for sewing.
