This lace-up sweatshirt is a nice re-fashion step-up. The how-to directions reveal how easy is to update a comfy hoodie or plain sweatshirt, specifically the kind that is pulled over the head. I wouldnt apply this technique to kids sweatshirts, but it looks trendy and chic for adult sizes. Nice fall weather project.

Clever pattern and style idea! You could even add more style by selecting either contrasting or same colored grommets and laces. Another option might be to do the same procedure on one or both side seams, especially if your shirt got a bit shrunk in the dryer! Just wear an underlayer for those chilly days! Super idea, thanks for sharing your creativity and idea!

I've been seeing this style in boutiques during the past few weeks. I am so happy to have this tutorial - it seems like an easy way to stay on top of the latest fashion trends!
