Another Cold Shoulder Refashion

I was lucky enough to find this Liz Claiborne sweatshirt for $1! I love it’s bright blue color! I played around with possibly embroidering something on the front but I decided I really liked this sweatshirt plain Jane.

I decided on making a cut-out in the shoulder area to make a cold shoulder shirt.

DSCN1927I pinned a pattern I had back from a refashion I did where I added elbow patches to a sweater. Never throw away a pattern!

My tailor’s chalk wouldn’t show up on this fabric. So, I took my sharpest smallest pair of scissors and carefully cut inside the oval pattern.

DSCN1928I did not want to leave the raw edges to fray. I found a matching bias tape and carefully stitched it around the edge of the ovals. This proved to be a very complicated task. I think maybe the bias tape I had may have been too small of a size. Either way, it turned out pretty well.
