    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.

      ok at first I thought you were wearing safety pins as earrings and maybe thats a sign that I should really get a pair of glasses again btw i always love ur videos so much and i feel so inspired rn to sew something even tho i don't know how to sew :D

    14. Viv Hazelrigg

      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!

    15. JenniRudolph
