Tutorial: Take in a boxy sweatshirt with a zipper on the back

zipsweater-005Liz from Cotton & Curls used a zipper insertion to remove extra width from a boxy sweatshirt.  She didn’t actually cut the fabric, so the zipper just makes a big pleat in the back.  I love this!  It gives the shirt a more flattering shape for your figure, and it also just looks cool.  She used a standard zipper, but I wonder if you could use a separating zipper to make the pleat removable when you wanted a looser fit?   Go to her blog to see how she did it.
