We’ve already told you how to refashion a sweatshirt using embellishments, and here’s one more idea to create a contrasting piece. You’ll need a sweatshirt, contrasting material, matching thread and a seam ripper. Use your seam ripper to remove the entire front of the shirt, as seen below. You’ll be ripping out the side seams, the raglan seams, the front section of the neckline, and the front part of the waistband. Using the section you just removed, cut a piece of your contrasting fabric. If your contrasting fabric is not stretchy, add 1 1/2 inches of seam allowance on each side and the top, and 2 1/2 inches of seam allowance on the bottom.
