I had this nice sweatshirt, but it was kid's size. Normally, if the size is for 12-14 years old, it is good for me. This was littler ;D So, given that I often wear sweatshirts without closing it, I decided to open it to use it.
Of course this can be done with sweatshirts of a right size!!
This was my mom's idea.

Step 1: Iron the Crease
Iron the sweatshirt flat, than fold it in two and iron the crease really well. It has to be visible when you spread the sweatshirt out.
Step 2: Mark the Crease
Mark the crease with a chalk.
Step 3: Cut
Cut on the line. Pay attention to cut precisely and as straight as possible.
Step 4: Iron the Hem
Fold the hem (1 or 2 cm) and iron it. You can baste it with thread or pin. I didn't baste it, I sewed it directly with the sewing machine.
Step 5: Sew
Sew the hem. If the sweatshirt has a big front pocket like this one, it will be automatically transformed it two lateral pockets in this step.
Step 6: Zipper
Sew the zipper and enjoy your work. :)
