details: colored thread

Here’s a cute detail to consider in your own sewing. Each button on this blouse was sewn using a different thread color.

This would be especially effective on a neutral-colored print (like the blouse shown) or on a solid color. It brightens up and highlights the mother-of-pearl buttons that were used, too.

  4. I’ve seen this done before on a skirt (with buttons up the front). I love the idea! It’s like adding a secret little rainbow to your clothes!

    oh, and if it wasn’t too much you could also do the button holes in coordinating colours too! it could also be a self check for kids getting the right buttons in the right button holes.
