Reader Pickles: What To Do With Belt Loops On Vintage Dresses?

Gina S. from Chicago has a fashion pickle she needs solved: "I have a ton of great vintage dresses that I've thrifted, but they all have these lame belt loops that I really don't need. I want to remove them, but every time I've tried I've made HUGE holes in the dress, and taking them to the tailor for repairs costs more than I paid for the dress in the first place. Can you help?"
