I don’t know about you, but it drives me crazy when I pull my hoodies or sweats out of the laundry and the drawstrings are crazy lopsided. Or when Brynley decides to yank on one end and I then have to even them back out.
Well the solution to this problem is so simple it takes like 5 minutes to fix permanently. You’ll still have full function, but they’ll always be centered. Awesome, right?
So here’s how it works:
- Center your drawstrings.
- Find the center of the hood (or the back of the waistband on pants). On hoodies, there’s usually already a seam in the hood lining that helps you get everything perfect.
- Sew across the casing with a sewing machine or tack the string in place by hand.
