I am making a little seersucker spring jacket from a vintage pattern for my girl. I have been searching all day online for buttons for it. I am trying to find large buttons for a coat that are vintageish looking. I wanted a pearl-like shank button. I can't find any large enough. The pattern actually gives totally wrong information about what is needed for buttons but I am thinking something around 1 1/2 inches would look good. Does anyone know where I can find some? I may break down and look at some jackets in some second hand shops and cut them off but that could be costly for buttons. I don't even know if this jacket will turn out.
I was going to start Luke's t-shirt before this jacket but my husband threw out the piece of ribbed knit fabric he found in the dryer. He thought it was a scrap and trash. I was a little annoyed at first but I think it is funny now. I am lucky he doesn't throw out half of my craft stuff.
