I altered an old zippered hoodie with ugly embroidery.
I first tried to pick out the threads, then relized that didn´t worth
I thought about use ruffles to cover the embroidery,
but it´s hard to choose a fabric which color matchs.
Why not use the hoodie to make new collar band and ruffles?
Much prettier, huh?
It reminded me of something you might find at J. Crew
The collar band looks a bit curly because I must stretch it a bit to fit the collar when sew. But a steam iron will help it lay flat.
