My lovely friend Theresa went to Tasmania for a weekend and brought me back three wonderful Huon pine buttons. Inspired by this fantastic new acquisition, I decided to go on the hunt for a pattern that could show off my new little friends.
I decided on a pinafore-ish pattern by burda young fashion #7739 and combined it with a scandalously red coat fabric, and an outfit is born.
It’s starting to get cold down here in the Southern hemisphere and this lil’ number and I are going to be the best of friends.
My lovely new Huon pine buttons love their new home.
Hit the city streets in adventurous looks with utilitarian details like cargo pockets and belts.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
