- sweatshirt (I found mine at Target)
- contrasting material, such as brocade (I found mine in the home decor section at Jo-Ann’s)
- matching thread
- seam ripper
Step 2. Using the section you just removed, cut a piece of your contrasting fabric. IMPORTANT: If your contrasting fabric is NOT stretchy, add 1 1/2 inches of seam allowance on each side and the top, and 2 1/2 inches of seam allowance on the bottom.
Step 3. With right sides together, pin your contrasting fabric to the remaining sweatshirt and sew up the sides and raglan seam with a straight stitch. Trim and serge or zigzag your raw edge. Repeat on the other side.
Step 4. Now your sweatshirt should look like this. Next, with right sides together, pin the neckline ribbing to the contrasting fabric, stretching the ribbing to fit across.
Sew in place with a straight stitch, pulling the ribbing flat in between pins as you sew.
Your neckline should now look like this. Top stitch right below the ribbing with a wide straight stitch.
Step 5. With right sides together, pin the waistband ribbing to the contrasting fabric, stretching it to fit. Sew it up with a straight stitch, pulling the ribbing flat in between pins. Press all your seams and you’re done!
