Sweatshirt Hood Removal


It's been quite a while since I have shared anything on here.....

I was gifted this sweatshirt but never really liked it because the hood was so thick and heavy. It felt awkward to wear under a jacket with the hood down and if the hood was down it would choke at me because it was way down on my back.

So, I cut it away!

I first cutaway close to the seam that held the hood on. I thought I would start there because you can always cut away more but you can't add the fabric back.

I thought it was a weird collar placement that way, both not close enough to the neck and not far away from the neck.

Next I drew a chalk line that was a two finger width around the collar. Then folded the sweatshirt in half so that I would be making a symmetrical cut. 

I didn't like the look of a completely raw edge so I added a zigzag stitch around the perimeter of the collar. And that is the simple way I removed a hood from a sweatshirt.

Elf Sightings

Looks like I started creating this post in December 2020 but never added text or published it so I'm just going to go ahead and publish it now without adding text to each picture because I think each one pretty much speaks for itself.
