You see, I'm one of those people who can't stand anything around their neck. (We'll for some reason scarves are ok. Probably because I wear them over my mouth mostly, or loosly around my neck.) I feel like I'm choking to death. I hate turtlenecks so much that Blockette has never ever worn one. Even seeing one can bring on a panic that I can't breathe.
So, I was faced with a dilemma: I could alter the sweatshirt somehow and possibly risk ruining it, or leave it alone and never wear it. I really like the hoodie, but was so afraid I'd ruin it. So It just sat there. And sat there. Not getting worn. I finally decided that I should just get over it and try to make the sweatshirt into something I could wear.
That's so much better.
Yeah yeah yeah. I know. I forgot to take a before picture.
The neckline looked sort of like this:
Of course my sweatshirt is much better than the ones in the above photo. Mine is turquoise and the logo is way more awesome. It's especially awesomer as I can now wear it without passing out from hyperventilating.
If you have chokey hooded sweatshirts why not hack them up to make them super comfy!
Fear not! If I can do it, so can you.
I followed this video from Khayotikk on you tube.
As you can see, I made the "V" in my hoodie much more shallow that the lady in the video did. I didn't want to cut into the logo on my shirt.
Before watching the video I had no idea how to cut a hoodie like this. It was super helpful, and made me much less scared to take the scissors to the fabric. Hooray for You tube!
