So I went through drawer number 1. Do you think I could find 6 identical white, black, or navy buttons? Of course not. The white buttons I do have are rather vintage and so they all have a yellow cast to them and looked rather dingy against the shirt.
Do I ever need a new system for my button stash or what?! Any takers on helping me get my button stash organized. I'll pay you in buttons.
The original buttons were fabric covered shank buttons but they were really cheap. The shank part is made of plastic and I could tell it was only a matter of time before they busted off. Like I said I found a vintage 'white' button set. Don't be fooled by the photo. They all had a yellow cast. And after I sorted through all my button mess twice I finally discovered 6 little grey buttons.Have I mentioned my sewing machine automatically sews on buttons? I kid you not! Sewing on all these buttons took me less than 6 minutes. There were 6 buttons. I'll let you do the math. :) I'll most likely wear this shirt with my grey dress pants and newly purchased $6 faux patent leather navy flats (also purchased at the same store).
