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.
