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.

PSA: The idea to fold up the cardigan and utilize the original heme is good it just needed a topstitch to make it look 'more normal'

We all need to have "You're doing great honey, keep it up" saved on our phone so we can set it to come on at random times of the day. Instant moral boost 😊
