Alice Sweatshirt Remake

Added Feb 2, 2015

Espoo, Finland






this sweatshirt i made about a year ago shrank so bad in the tumble dryer (just the bodice part though, thankfully. you can see it on the last pic!), so i decided to remake it, combining it with this tunic which i had not really been using for a looong time.

the result is this crazy ’80s sweatshirt! i just didn’t want to give up the Alice in Wonderland fabric, and neither did i want to give up the Nanso fabric. the only problem (again) was that the Nanso fabric was so small that i did not have enough to make a proper neckline and hem. i didn’t even bother changing the cuffs (so basically this sweatshirt now has 3 different fabrics!).

i’m not sure i’m satisfied enough with the neckline… but as long as i wear my hair down, i guess it’s quite okay. and what did i say? i’m just too lazy to correct it again. i just want to wear this sweatshirt already and spread the ’80s fashion bug!

    This is a really good result-great that you could salvage your shrunken top. Looks great on you.
