HOODIES...Wardrobe Staples, for sure...

But even Staples get Tired, Over-Used, and Look for New Fashion Beginnings...

This Hoodie Sports a Soft, Pretty Blue Color...But it Hangs Droopy, bordering on Almost-Frumpy...

The Bold Block Letters on the Back are Dramatic...but the Overall Look is Ho Hum and a bit Tired...


Can We Magically Transform a HOODIE Into an Exciting, New Wardrobe Staple???


Can You Say HIGH/LOW HOODIE???


YES! LET'S GO!! Get Your Scissors!!

Step One - MEASURE: Figure out where the Crop will be...This one works best by Cutting Just Above the Front Pocket...

But this One has Bold Lettering on the Back...We Can't Cut Straight Across All Around the Hoodie...We need to be careful to Cut a Dip in the Back to Preserve the Letters...


A HIGH/LOW HOODIE!

Step Two - CUT: Cut the Front of the Hoodie above the Front Pocket...

Nice and Straight in the Front...Steady as She Goes...

Cut the Back with a Gentle Dip to Preserve the Lettering and for the High/Low Look to Bump Up this Hoodie Style...

Step 3 - TRIM: Now for the Ultimate Game-Changer...Black Double-Sided 1 Inch Bias Trim to Finish, Heighten, Enliven, and Pop the High/Low Hoodie Look!


Black Double-Sided 1 Inch Bias Tape...Amazon LINK.

Pin the Bias Tape all around the cut edges of the Hoodie...Front to Back.

Take Your Time and Sew the Tape All Around the edge of the hoodie.

Done in a Hot Minute! Here's the Front...

And the Back...with the subtle High/Low Hem.

Now the Hoodie has a Fun Jolt that is Itching to Move...

Ready for a Quick Spin...From Back...

To Front...Dancing All the Way!

The High/Low Hoodie Transformation! So Fun!
