When I heard that the 3rd challenge was buttons I thought to myself BUTTONS!!?!? I LOVE buttons! I have always admired my mom’s extensive button collection! So, when I took an interest in sewing I was ecstatic to start collecting my own buttons! So there I was at every fabric store sale and thrift store buying buttons….
I found this dress with buttons down the back which inspired me for this challenge.
I made the neckline in the back into a v-neck. I hemmed bottom by 4 inches.
I made a sash out of the scrap I cut from the bottom of my dress.
My idea for buttons was to sew buttons into a nice floral pattern. I printed out an ivy pattern and traced it on my dress.
Next Up: Accessories!
I started with a white t-shirt to make a bag. I cut off the sleeves and neckline. I sewed the t-shirt at the bottom and cut the access into fringe.
To top off my new bag I sewed on the biggest buttons I had. Then I sewed stings of buttons amongst the fringe.
To top my outfit off I hot glued buttons onto earring posts! I also made my very own button bracelet! I have always admired a button bracelet that my mom bought at a garage sale, so I made my own!
