Refashion Runway Season Four: Button Sew Along

A big thank you to everyone who sewed along with us this week on the Button Challenge!


Vicky Myers from Vicky Myers Creations

I have been lucky to inherit my Gran’s and mother-in-law’s button boxes. I
have designed a bag which shows off many odd buttons. The bag is perfectly
sized for a purse, mobile phone and keys. Each side has different buttons.

Idea: Make something larger and something smaller with the aid of buttons.
a homemade dress, that had become too small around the chest. I added a
button placket, that contributed a few much needed centimeters (or
And a too large skirt. I took it in with a pleat off center,
that I embellished with ribbon and buttons. I also shortened the dress

This week, I put together a button yoyo wristlet from a jar of yoyos in my
sewing room, a whole lot of decorative stitching on buttons that I added to
the bag. The yoyos are backed with some turquoise faille I cut from a
skirt that I made and never wore. I’ve wanted to make this kind of little
purse forever, and I’m glad to have had the inspiration of this week’s
challenge! All the details of the bag are at Elizabeth Made This

This week for Buttons, I thought I would do something different. I did not want to
make another dress and I have tons of jeans at home. So I thought I would make a
cropped jacket. It became a cropped vest (read my blog post to know why…) and I
trimmed it with a tie. The button part is a cat silhouette, because I LOVE CATS !!!
Enjoy !
