A Little Somethin' Somethin'

Hello again!

Here is the other project I mentioned in my last post! Very quick and easy.

Wooh, blurry! Sorry about that. Also inside out. Wow I am so organized. Anyway! Tank top; nice fabric, easy to dress up, but too large. Pretty easy take in, seam and serge.

I have a zillion 'plain, dress up or dress down' tank tops though, so I wanted to add a little something to this one. Nothing too wild, just a weeeeeee extra detail. So I 'auditioned' a few buttons and settled on these two. Dunno how old they are; 99.5% of my buttons are from my grandmother's stash she was going to junk many years ago.
 
I hand sewed them onto the front for a little cuteness. It was SO HARD to get them in a straight line... I had to redo the bottom button like 3 times LOL

Here is a (sideways) close up! The vintage creamy color goes with the flowers perfectly!

That's all for now!

Kisses,
~Illy

Love the simple pop of change those sweet buttons make. And so glad you saved your Grandmother's buttons. I always wonder about thrifts like button and threads. And if they were someones Granny's. I say a special thank you of appreciation to that kindred sewing spirit.
