This super simple tutorial shows you how to let out a buttoned shirt so it’s less restricted in the bust area. You can move just a few select buttons, but we adjusted all of them so they look uniform.
Use a seam ripper to undo the thread and remove the buttons.
Be careful not to cut into the shirt fabric.
You may want to use a pin to hold the button in place while sewing.
Move the button closer to the edge of the shirt and re-sew it. The threads should cross at the top of the button.
Sew the button a little loose so it will fit through the buttonhole afterwards.
