This began as a sweatshirt rescued from the thrift store -I’m a bit of a tiger nut, so I just couldn’t resist. I took it in to fit a bit better, then cut a deep scoop out of the back (and a shallow one from the neckline), went after that with some stretch lace also liberated from the thrift store. I punched a bunch of holes in it, grommeted ’em, then laced it up again with a strip of knit fabric.
