I had to drop off bags of donations at VV yesterday and so of course I had to do a quick run-through of the store... I found this all silk wedding suit which is gorgeous silk... I assume it was a wedding suit as it has a very long train... It is beautifully tailored and softly shirred around the waist and hips... I can hardly wait to start chopping it to pieces for crazy quilting....The silk is very high quality and can be dyed any color.
But what was on the back was a bonus..
Down the entire length of back and train are all these tiny silk-covered buttons....91 of them. There is a small bit of crystal beading in the front but the straps are elaborately and elegantly beaded ...
Button Floozies is devoted to buttons and the women who love them. For many of us, button love began when played with our mothers' and grandmothers' button tins as children and has grown through the years. The Button Floozies blog is written by many contributors; they are listed below under the heading "Button Floozies". Whether you collect, or just admire, all things tiny and fabulous, join us as we show our treasures, and the things of beauty we create with buttons! -- Laurie firstname.lastname@example.org
