I definitely love that it's pink and grey. But it's a pullover and the neck is just a little too tight to be comfortable. Plus, after I bought it, I realized that there aren't a lot of opportunities to wear a pull over, hooded sweatshirt as a teacher.
There's also a mysterious stain right on the front pocket and it has never gone away.
I had some divine inspiration and this is what happened:
I cut it up the center. And then realized there was a funky thing I'd have to deal with at the neck.
I added a zipper and voilà! It's not the best fitting sweatshirt, no matter how I wear it, but at least now, I can wear it and get away with it for a Friday.
I was really excited to find a grey zipper to match. This was truly the easiest zipper I've ever put it in my life! It's a sports zipper, so it's fatter than what you'd put in a dress. And it was magically just the right length so I didn't even have to worry about it being too long or too short!
And according to k-ster, you "can't even tell it's homemade" which is what I always strive for!
And that stain? It's pretty much hidden by the seam of the zipper so no one will notice!
So of course, my first thought when I finished was "hmmm,, what other sweatshirts can I do this to?" but it turns out, I don't have hooded sweatshirts!
