Blouse Repairs!

Some Stores sell brand new clothes for super clearance prices if there is ever a tear or button missing. This is great because if you know a few simple fix-up tips than those cute new shirts can be easily fixed up and only cost a fraction of the normal cost. I got these for $2.49 and $3.99!

DSC_9871With the polk dot shirt I didn’t have any snaps to replace the missing ones so I sewed 4-6 inches of the front bodice closed where the snaps were missing. I just pull it on overhead when I wear it instead of needing to unsnap and snap every snap. It actually makes it better not having to worry any snaps are gapping open…. ever. Yeah!

Be create and think outside of the box to make the piece original. Give yourself a time limit, too. Truly how many times are you going to wear it? Make it work but keep it simple. DSC_9850
