Say Your Pleats and Thank You's Sweatshirt

Thank you Forever 21 for inspiration of this sweatshirt. I had a long sleeve sweatshirt I got for $4 or something. It was a terrible fit. It was huge around the neck and low so it made it very awkward to wear with anything. (I am a terrible "before" picture taker. I'm too excited to get started! In this picture the neck band is already unpicked.)
What I did was raise the sleeves to make it a smaller neckline and cut off the sleeves for a springy/summery look. The inspiration I got from Forever 21 was the pleats I put into the top part of the raglan sleeve. It adds a little feminism while keeping casual for those chilly spring/summer nights. Here's a close up of the pleat
