I was so thrilled with all the great button suggestions from all of you in this post. I suppose the only problem with soliciting advice from so many people is that I can’t possibly do everything that was suggested. I loved the idea of vintage or wooden buttons and promptly ordered a bunch of vintage buttons from Deborah to try. Of course I knew there was no way they would get to me in time for Christmas (especially because I paid the day after, oops), so for the family celebrations I just plopped on a double row of these cream plastic ones, thinking that I could sew the “real” ones on later. It looked pretty good though, so I saved a few pictures for you guys (Note: Please do not copy or use pictures of Clementine. Thanks!)
The red and white striped tights only lasted about half the day. Then it was on to purple polka dots, which actually looked better with the dress (in my opinion):
And we’re outta here.
