1 / How to choose a sweatshirt to be feminine?
Originally intended for athletes, the sweatshirt is not the piece that we think of first to be feminine. To be feminine with a sweatshirt, you have to pay attention to its shape, the way it is cut, as well as the color chosen. For this, we advise you not to choose a hoodie, rather reserved for teenagers. The ideal length is one that stops above your hips; as for the shape, the sweatshirt must be neither too large nor too close to the body! If you wish, you can also opt for an oversized sweatshirt; however, remember to roll up the sleeves a little to lighten the silhouette, or to choose it a little low-cut. Finally, for the color, you are free to choose the one you want; If you don't know which way to go, we recommend that you start with a light gray or beige sweatshirt that will fit any outfit.
2 / How to personalize a sweatshirt?
A solid color sweatshirt can look a bit bland. In order to change this, the easiest solution is to add an accessory, such as a brooch for example directly on the garment, or a big necklace. For a little more originality, you can have images or photos printed on your sweatshirt; many websites offer this kind of service. For the most seasoned couturiers, several possibilities are available to you; for example, you can make a slit in the back and insert a lace, or add rhinestones on the sleeves or at the collar. Be creative!
3 / How to make a sweatshirt?
To make a sweatshirt, you will need a pattern, thread, a sewing machine, a pair of scissors, pins, and some sweatshirt fabric. The sweatshirt is a fabric in its own right; it is made of mesh and its elasticity makes it even more comfortable. If you don't have a pattern, you can make one out of kraft paper, following the pattern of a sweatshirt you already have. Lay the pattern on your fabric and pin it, then cut out the necessary pieces. Then you just have to assemble the sleeves with the front and back of the garment. If you wish, but it is not compulsory, you can sew a ribbing at the ends of the sweatshirt, on the collar, on the bottom, and at the level of the cuffs.
