Button, button, where’s the button?

What do you do when a favorite article of clothing loses a button?  Does it sit dismally in the closet corner until you can remember to take it to the tailor (or worse, is it relegated to the thrift store pile)?

Well, I am here to help you return that gorgeous pair of pants to their former glory as the elegant inhabitants of a smooth walnut hanger! Last week, we discussed the benefits of being able to hem your own pants.  Sewing on a button is another one of those things that, once you know how to do it, can easily be done in less time than it takes to watch an episode of The Big Bang Theory.

This tutorial by Collen G. Lea at Fashion Sewing Blog shows how to correctly attach different types of buttons in a cinch.  So tonight, when you’re enthralled in the next Sci-fi movie dedicated to the misadventures of a team of divers held captive by the pre-historic Shark-platypus, break out a needle and thread and stop mourning the loss of that previously banished blouse already.
