Description

A merging of two comfortable knit shirts from the same thrift store run— the blue hoodie was too short, and the asymmetric neckline of the green shirt just looked weird on me but the fabric was too comfortable to pass up. I changed the sleeves, added length to the bottom, added trim to the hood, and did a reverse applique inspired by the hoodie’s original tag.

Material Notes

cotton jersey hoodie (blue), tencel knit shirt (green)

    SO CUTE! Why wasn’t I born with the vision you gals have? Nothing is ever long enough for me in the top/shirt/blouse department, and I live in comfy clothes unless forced to do otherwise by social obligations. I also carouse in thrift stores. So why I never thought of putting 2 & 2 together (or 1 & 1 in this case), I don’t know. Well, that’s what Burda is for I guess, to enlighten and share. Thanks, you’ve given me a short solution for my long waist:)
