Blouse with decorative buttons

A friend of mine gave me a lot of her old clothes. Among them this dress.One of the side seams had ripped, and it had a few small holes. 

I sewed up the seam and mended the holes. Then I added black buttons (that matched the buttons at the side) to cover the stitching.

No before picture, but it looked like in the after photo, just without the buttons.

I realised that I would never wear it as it was, so I shortened it to become a blouse. I love it now.

Really love the buttons on the side seam idea!
it does look much better as a blouse.
