Who knew old buttons could be soooo adorable!

  • Step 1

    Select or make your dress!
    Pick a plain dress so the pattern won't clash with your embellishments.

  • Step 2

    Next, I recommend laying out your buttons where you want them to be and taking a picture so you can look back and remember what goes where.

  • Step 3

    After doing that simply thread your needle and begin sewing on your buttons.
    I recommend going through 3 times if using all purpose thread and tying a doulbe knot after each button.

  • Step 4

    Once all of your buttons are in place, you can add an assortment of very small to large saftey pins on the other strap.
    I used this patter:
    3 really tiny ones
    1 small one
    3 really tiny ones
    1 medium/ standard one
    3 really tiny ones
    1 large one

    After that you are finished!
