How to Trim and Alter Sweatshirts

In case our first sweatshirt book or our second didn’t have enough snap for your fashion needs, I present even MORE designer sweatshirts. You will be happy to see that I have included directions on making your sweatshirt into a cardigan. You will be a total fashion hit at the next ALA convention in your sweatshirt cardigan.

Happy Sewing!

  1. This is just about the most ridiculous thing Ive ever seen,barring the book about making Skirtains of course lol!!!

    1. I had a skirtain as a child! My mother made it for me from the slate blue curtains she had for her bookcase in college. I liked it quite a lot.

  2. The sad thing about a lot of these old crafting books is the complete lack of color photos (or photos in general). The B&W line drawings just don’t fully convey the true majesty of a home-altered sweatshirt.

  3. One of the women in my parents’ group of boating friends used to make sweatshirt cardigans — I think my mother still has hers. It was decorated with nautical rick-rack — it was dressier than a plain sweatshirt but sturdier than a sweater and you could go ashore in it without looking rough. (In those days, ladies didn’t go around in public in working clothes.)
