Again, I'm misleading you with something boring, in theory. However, there are some things I think everyone should know about, and that includes the beauty of buttons. From fixing a button that has popped off to updating the look of a top by switching them out, this how-to will help.
When my hubby or I buy something, I keep the extra buttons that come along with it. They are so handy to have around. You never know when you may need to replace a button (or when they might work well for a project).
To reattach a missing button, use a needle and thread to sew it on again for (hopefully) a permanent fix.
In a pinch? Use a twisty tie for buttons that have the loop on the back or a safety pin for those that have holes in the front. Neither of those solutions are permanent, but they do work for a quick fix when out and about.
This is a fave top of mine, but shortly after wearing it the first time, the top button popped off. In hopes to make it more unique, instead of reattaching the same button, I opted for a crystal button (we all know how much I love those).
Now it has an updated look. This little trick can really spice up the pieces in your closet!
I used the same technique in this project from last year.
