90s Ice Dye Varsity Patch Sweatshirts - Blue, Green, & Copper

Green - Twirler
Green - Harp

Vintage reverse tie-dye sweatshirts that have been reworked in-house by Flying Apple using the ice dye method with bleach, each with a unique pattern. The sweatshirt are all authentic vintage from the 1990s, made of a cotton/poly blend and originally manufactured in the USA. The patches were harvested from 1950s/60s varsity jackets and were then applied to the front of the chest using a basic stitch. All are available for purchase separately. We put a lot of heart into these, and hope you love them as much as we enjoyed making them <3
