Thrifted Sweatshirt Re-Fashion

I found this sweatshirt at Savers for $2 a few months ago. As you can see, it. was. huge. My husband was so confused when I was buying it, but I knew I could take it in. I loved the color and the v-neck style of it. It was worth the risk. It also has shoulder pads. Yes, has. I left them! Anyway, once it was home the task seemed daunting because I thought I would need to do a bunch of fancy sewing to keep it proportional but it turns out a quick taking in of the sides and sleeves proved to be all that was needed!
