In a bag full of buttons
I'm that tiny unique one.....

Odd in size and color
Holes as round as the sun.....

I may not shine or sparkle
Or even catch most eyes.....

I may not match one's attire
Nor compare to all those flies.....

Though, I may not have a matching set
I've learned to stand alone.....

When it comes to wearing the britches
I surely can hold my own.

I found this wonderful poem about buttons written by 4 SUGAR BEAR - here - http://poetrywithmeaning.com/authors/4%20SUGAR%20BEAR/6417 and thought it was fitting Smiley

This is quite a simple little summer dress, it just needed something to spice it up. I decided to utilize my rather large button collection and showcase my favorite buttons on the dress. This is it so far. When ever i find a new button I love I'll attach it Smiley hopefully it will get quite over the top!

And here is a mini, bat wing style dress i whipped up before an cocktail event one day, very rushed job... so rushed in fact i forgot to use my zig zag stitch for the middle and its an awful squeeze to get into... but one its on it fits beautifully







Thanks for looking!

As always c & c is adored Smiley

xoxo

The batwing dress is good, but those buttons really make it pop!  Great embellishment.  Simple idea, but the end product is terrific!
