              Dude you know a seam ripper costs less than some of those thrift haul items. They’re like 3 dollars.

                            Hi! I am interested in getting into thrifting and transforming clothes. I have very, very basic skills (aka I can follow a basic pattern). Is there any tips you could share on what skills you need to aquire/things you need to know in order to become successful in transforming clothes? Maybe you could make a video about it???

I thought you were going to move the buttons so that they were at the angle you wanted and used the snap inside to hold the fabric where the buttons used to be in a more natural alignment, and keep excess material from bunching. Sort of creating a wrap around dress effect? If that made sense I think that’s how I would try making a large waisted dress more fitted instead.
