button treasure from thrift store
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 ...
