Refashion Runway: Button Challenge 

When I heard that the 3rd challenge was buttons I thought to myself BUTTONS!!?!? I LOVE buttons! I have always admired my mom’s extensive button collection! So, when I took an interest in sewing I was ecstatic to start collecting my own buttons! So there I was at every fabric store sale and thrift store buying buttons….

Got buttons?

I found this dress with buttons down the back which inspired me for this challenge.

I made the neckline in the back into a v-neck. I hemmed bottom by 4 inches.

I made a sash out of the scrap I cut from the bottom of my dress. 

My idea for buttons was to sew buttons into a nice floral pattern. I printed out an ivy pattern and traced it on my dress.

Next Up: Accessories!


I started with a white t-shirt to make a bag. I cut off the sleeves and neckline. I sewed the t-shirt at the bottom and cut the access into fringe.

To top off my new bag I sewed on the biggest buttons I had. Then I sewed stings of buttons amongst the fringe.

To top my outfit off I hot glued buttons onto earring posts! I also made my very own button bracelet! I have always admired a button bracelet that my mom bought at a garage sale, so I made my own!



Happy Refashioning!!!!

  1. When I saw that buttons was the week 3 challenge I immediately thought of you 🙂 I knew you’d come up with something really cute for this challenge. This is really great. I love the ivy flourishes on the dress.
