    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.

    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!

    Duuude I especially love the first one. I probably would have kept the sleeves cuz I'm a hoe for flowy sleeves.
    But you're right. It does look really great without them too.
