As any arbiter of style will tell you (I have no idea, I am completely making this up), buttons can make or break a piece of clothing. Buttons, my friends, are serious business. If I have learned anything from my forays into clothes making (mostly through the knitted garment, as I am not really a sewer of clothes...yet) it's that the wrong button can ruin a perfectly fabulous garment.
Due to the importance that buttons pose in the style quotient of a garment. I am in a quandary, which button is best?
Originally, Little Sir was all about selecting the buttons for the sweater himself. He handed over this dubious honor when he realized how hard it was to pick buttons out.
The birthday sweater is almost done. I need to finish the last sleeve, sew down the facings, block it, and of course, sew on the buttons.
On a different note, I have been wondering about the best way toput up posts that are interesting on a regular basis. It has occurred to me that my modus operandi of popping in a post when I have actually finished something is not a way to maintain any sort of dialog. And while I find work-in-progress posts interesting on other people's craft blogs, the idea of doing them myself has always been somewhat disenchanting. But I think I am going to start doing them, and in addition to WIP business, I will also share with you the musings of my mind while I an working on things. Which for most craft bloggers can be summed up as, well, a "blog post." In any case, the "birthday sweater" needs buttons, and I am curious, what buttons do you think is the winning choice?
