button mods

I have this shirt. It's white, button down, classic, yet with lots of floaty extra fabric and I always get compliments on it. It's comfy, goes with everything.

But the sleeves, which fold up and are cute, half length, are too tight, and are held together with two white buttons, connected by a bit of thread and threaded through two buttonholes.

Last week I wanted to wear this, took it out, put it on, decided to fix it.

I needed buttons that had extra thread between them so the sleeves weren't so tight. And while I was at it I thought it would be fun to add a splash of color.

Much improved. And I can do up a bunch of these little sets of two buttons connected by thread (or yarn, perhaps!) and change the colors easily. Any minor clothing mods you've been putting off?
