Intro: Make a XL (men) Hoody Into a Dress.
Because I LOVE wearing hoody's, nice and warm and the best are from my boyfriend because they are so long!
To make them a little more girly i'd thought i would give it a try taking the sewing machine and make it custom fit.
It is long enough for me to wear with just leggings and let it look like a 'dress'. Its só comfy! Love the way it turned out :).
Hope you like it, its my first instructable!
Step 1: Get an Oversized Hoody.
I bought one at `C&A` because it was a nice colour and just €9,-.
Step 2: Turn Inside/out and Draw an Outline
First turn your hoody inside out. I had the front on top so I could see the front pocket and could make sure this would stay intact.
Then take a sweater that fits slim, and draw the outline.
Make sure the armpit seams allign.
Step 3: Sew!
Sew a little from the edge of the line you just draw, About one cm to the outside of the hoody.
Step 4: Try On
Now turn outside-in, and try on if you can still get in. It will fit a little smaller then the end result. Because a lot of the fabric is still in but will later on be cut off.
Step 5: Cut of the Extra Fabric
Mine was a good fit, you can still ajust or start over if you havent cut anything off.
I cut off the extra fabric, again one cm from the sewing line.
Step 6: Secure the Seams
To make the seams stronger, finish the edges, I jused the "Zigzag" function on the machine.
Step 7: Wear and Enjoy!
Now turn back outside-in, and its ready to wear!
I loved it :)
