I love making my own clothes, but of course I don’t always have time for making everything so I do like to do a lot of DIY stuff. Like customizing some of my basic wardrobe pieces. It does not have to be completely changing the piece or anything drastic or complicated, I like to keep it simple too. For this DIY to a custom closet all I did was change the buttons on the sleeve of this striped crop top. This is an easy 15 minute task that you can even do while you watch your favorite show. All you need is…
-a top you want to change the buttons on
-new buttons (make sure you get as many as you are taking off)
The buttons you get should be about the same size as the buttons you take off. That way you know the new buttons will still fit through the button holesOn my top it is a fake closure so I didn’t have to make sure the buttons I used were the same size as the old ones so I just switched out the gold and black anchor buttons for some purple pearl beads for a chic look.
Of course I completely forgot to do a before picture before I took off all the old buttons, so you will just have to trust me when I say the whole vibe of the top is a lot less nautical and I feel like this makes it a bit more versatile to rotate through my wardrobe. I took a picture of the old buttons so you can get an idea of what I’m talking about.
So this all leads to my DIY tip of the week, change out the buttons and it could just make the top (or item) a million times more wearable, fashionable, or just more your style.
