Sweatshirt Refashion knockoff – EASY!

 I bought a Cream sweater from Aeropostale HERE that was open in the back and I love it.
I then decided this would be a great DIY, and it is OH so easy.
Things you need.
  1. Sweatshirt
  2. Scissors
  3. Ribbon
  4. Needle and thread
  5. Small safety pin
 Fold your sweatshirt in half and run over the crease with your hand 
or you could Iron it to make a line.
Open your shirt back up and  place your shirt front side down and cut up the back
 all the way up your creased line
*just cut the back part of your sweater.
 Cut off the collar.
Over lap the two top corners and hand stitch them together.
Cut a piece of your ribbon and tie a bow tack the bow with  a needle and thread.
put your safety pin through the back of the bow.
Now  Pin it to your shirt, this way you can take it off when you want to wash it, 
or you could change to different colored  bows.

Or you could add other fun things like Pom Poms.
I hope you have a fantastic Monday
Lots of <3


  1. So clever and in fashion. Saw one and glad I didn’t purchase it – can make it for a lot less. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I got a bag of hand me downs from a friend and there were a lot of sweatshirts that looked a little too plain for my liking. I found your website and transformed them into highly fashionable creations of awesomeness. Thanks so much!!!

  3. I love this, what a great idea for a boring sweatshirt!!!

  4. cute…will try making one tomorrow!
