      Thank you! It was a little tricky to find buttons that looked “right” with the bright green (besides plain white or a pattern). These ended up being really cheap for a bunch of them at a discount store, but I really liked the color. I hope that they hold up okay! :-)

      Haha, exactly! Painting fabric is also kind of addicting – right after I finished this top I sewed up a skirt where I did a similar thing. It’s a lot of fun, I definitely recommend it. :-)

    Great outfit. I love both pieces and you did the buttonholes perfectly. I love how you did the stripes on the top and then added the liberty fabric. Smashing x
