One of my favorite things to alter/upcycle/refashion are button up tops because they’re so easy to change! A quick take in here and there and you’ve got it…a new and modernized top. When I get my hands on a button up that is in need of fixing, I use one of these 3 ways to take in a top paired with these quick instructions below. For you pregnant ladies, tapered is the way to go!
1. Try on inside out.
2. Mark what needs to be taken in. Use one of pictures below for your guide.
3. Pin flat.
4. Sew along the markings.
5. Cut out excess fabric leaving half inch.
6. Serge raw edges (or use zig zag stitch).
