Hi,

I have been searching forever for this button. It is a shank, dome style, smooth brush/satin gold. The diameter is 26-27 mm or 1 1/16 or even 1 1/8 inch.







Can anyone help me locate anything close to this? Thank you.   they are only allowing me to post the link to the photos not the actual image within my post , because I have not posted atleast ten times on the forum. so please click the link to my button pictures for better idea of what i am looking for. thank you

I'm almost positive I've seen that same style of button at Fabricland! I think if you explored the button section of any sufficiently large sewing store for long enough, you'd find it. I'm assuming you're trying to find a single button to match the one in the photo? If that's the case, consider replacing all of the buttons on that garment. Fabricland has a bin for all of their discontinued or slightly damaged buttons, for the ghastly cost of three cards for $1. All you have to do is rummage around until you find enough matching cards Cheesy

Thank.s I am not sure where fabricland is...do they have a website? Also I am considering replacing all the buttons. but button size seems to be the biggest problem. And I would like to replace them as closely as I can to the originals. I've checked joanns, michaels, hobby lobby, hancock fabrics. and online i have checked ebay, jhb, and la mode(?).

Joanns does have this style (or very similar however the largest they make it the la mode brand is 7/8" diameter. that is way to small.....

any other button websites I am not thinking of? or even craft/fabric stores?

Thanks.
