I found this great blog today and had to share it :D
Refashionista is an amazing seamstress who refashions awful thrift-store finds into new clothes and some of these results are so amazing?? Check her out! :D
I love how talented she is at turning her finds into fashionable pieces!
The commentary got cut off this one.
But she’s taking plus size stuff from plus size shoppers to “minimize” them into skinny girl fashions.
So she’s fat-shaming. No, really, she is. Look at the expression of “ew, giant plus size” in the BEFORE pictures.
And she’s taking legitimate purchases away from people of size who need those fashions as-is.
If she just wanted to show off her sewing chops she could buy stuff slightly too large. But she’s going for plus size on purpose.
what an ASSSHOLE
She is a talented seamstress, but she should stick to altering vintage clothes that are meant for someone of her size. From what I understand, it can be very difficult to find plus-sized clothing in vintage stores. So she’s wasting shit just to have more dramatic-looking before-and-after pictures/show off.
Have you ever tried sewing? Of course you need something larger to change it or you end up with a dress that’s way too small. And she makes the dresses for herself and not “skinny girl fashion”
