1880s Book Dress - VII BUTTONS!
This post is about buttons...or could be called "why I love Ebay..."
I've found several sources for fabulous historical-like buttons. Ok, maybe they aren't period correct but they look so pretty and are downright cheap when compared to running to the fabric store for carded buttons. I am taking creative license in choosing the buttons for the Book Dress top. Most likely based on the photo the front closed with hooks and eyes. It doesn't look like they used buttons. I bought 24 - two sets of 12 because I want to put a zillion tiny buttons down the front because that makes me happy!
