A long time ago I did a post about refashioning a HOODIE and cut off the hood to save for this... and then never did it. In fact, so much time passed that I couldn't even find the saved hood! So I cut one off from another project :)
Let's start with the jean jacket.
Here is the jacket before altering. It's a little big on me, and you may want to choose a very fitted jacket to achieve the best results. I'm toying with the idea of giving this away, so if you wear a medium and would like it, comment below. There must be some curse for that star stamp, because everything I use it on ends up not fitting!
HERE and sew it above. I sponge painted some fabric paint on to my stamp and stamped it right on the line.
I decided to really saturate the color of the fabric paint (although the faded look was good too), so I used a stiff brush to paint on some more color.
Next, to mimic the hooded look without making it permanent (which is a nice option in a warm summer), I layered the jacket over my TARDIS HOODIE refashion from earlier this year. Done!
I also did another khaki jacket, sewing an actual hood on. It was so stinking easy!
Try it on to make sure you like the placement.
Next you'll run it through your sewing machine using a tight stitch. You will want to sew along that extra 1/4- 1/2 of fabric that you left on since the actual hood will be extremely thick. So make sure you leave that fabric, it will make sewing it so much easier!
Here's the finished product again. I should have taken one with the hood up, because it looked really nice on this jacket. The colors went well together.
