broken shank on button...no way to sew it onto the jacket...now what am I suppose to do. I guess I can head back to M&J to buy another button...but I am just not feelin' that right now.
I have put three days into this jacket and I am ready to move on...so I go scrambling around in my considerable button collection and I find these vintage buttons from my friend Joanna. I originally wanted to put them on the jacket but there was only two of them....
Now should I have a different top button? Yeah! 'Cause I am sooooo over this jacket! *LOL* But will the button fit through the buttonhole...a few anxious seconds there and yes! It fits through the button hole...so for now I have a different top button than the other buttons...
I can always get to M&J during the week to pick up TWO more buttons to replace the broken button! Now what have I learned from this little adventure:
1. ALWAYS buy more than enough buttons - no more scrimping!
2. That the buttons I thought were plastic were actually glass so every time I dropped them I was probably damaging them!
3. It's good to have a collection because there is always something in there that can pinch hit! *LOL*
4. No one really looks at the buttons that hard anyway, 'cause I bet none of you noticed the top button was different!
