Guest Sewing Tutorial: Sweatshirts into Chic Button Tunic


Have I expressed how much I love projects that reuse, recycle, repurpose? Too many times? Well, this sewing tutorial for old sweatshirts is just awesome! Carly J. Cais of Chic Steals turns 3 over-sized men’s sweatshirts into an amazing button tunic which converts into 2 different skirt styles. How fun! This is what she has to say about it:

It seems a huge waste of 3 sweatshirts, but if your SO has extra unworn ones or you score at the Goodwill, it gives them another great life.  Can you imagine this done in cream, with gold anchor-embossed buttons for a sailor look?  Or seafoam green, with pearl buttons?  Or two-toned: heather gray on top with black at the waist?  The options are endless…and only limited by your imagination!

Plus-don’t throw away the top parts of your sweatshirts..more tutorials on what to do with those are on the way!
