{easy fix:: just add a button}

28 Nov

A few weeks ago, on one of my weekly thrift shop visits, I found this classic black vintage blouse.  I got it, knowing I’d have to do a little “pick me up” to the sleeves.  They were very boxy & not very feminine, so I planned on adding small button to add some shape.  It was such an easy fix & I absolutely love the end result.

{I measured out an inch from the center seem, in both directions, and pinned}

{brought the inch from the L/R together to meet in the center…secure it with a single stich}

{add the button & secure with 3-4 stitches}

I adore this simple fix & encourage you to try!

    Love it – such a simple idea, but it looks so cute (and makes the blouse look more expensive)!
