A few years ago there was a time when I would wander about the shops and find myself craving virtually everything. It took me a while to figure out that this was because a trend for fabric covered buttons was sweeping the high street. And I had a heightened sensitivity to them. Still do. You could show me a bland or even fairly hideous garment that the designer has had the insight to adorn with covered buttons and I'll still be physically drawn to it. Maybe it's because this style of buttons was also massive in the 60's, one of my favourite areas of dress, or maybe it's because they are successfully achieveable at home; whatever the reason, I can't get enought of the fabric covered button-crack.
Well, what is my weekly post at Colette Patterns, if not an extended excuse to indulge my sewing fixations, thinly veiled as potentially informative or inspirational tidbits? This week's is no different.
