    In this thrift flip, with the power of my trusty sewing machine and mediocre sewing skills, I transform affordable thrift store clothes into cute Reformation and Urban Outfitters inspired items. This thrift flip episode includes some of my best DIY’s yet: transforming a vintage 70’s bell sleeve dress into an updated Reformation inspired picnic ready dress, turning a plain lumpy sweater into an Urban Outfitters / french girl inspired pearl button cardigan, and altering a loose and ill fitting dress to an Ariana Grande inspired silhouette.

    You could add a ruffle to the bottom of the cropped cardigan. It would fix the raw hem, and look really cute

    One thing that helped me when I started sewing was the Readers Digest New Complete Guide to Sewing. With the sleeve, I would say take the pins out before you sew the area, it helps you smooth and get a straighter stitch. And for the hem of the cardigan all you had to do was sew the flap to the body of the sweater to get it to lay flat, it actually wasn’t bad but you freaked out and cut it off lol. I have a degree in fashion and when I was in school I struggled a lot with making alterations look purposeful lol meaning I would just wing it. The book REALLY helped when I was a freshman just learning how to make things look professionally done

    Girl you need to start using an iron! It really really really helps! You always always always press, sew, press, when you're sewing from scratch, and I think it would make it so much easier for you when you alter! I love and adore your videos, and they are such an inspiration! My friend and I TOTALLY bonded over your existence!
