My love for buttons continues. At an antique fair I found two small bags filled with small and medium old mother of pearl buttons, I immediately saw loads of opportunities and bought the lot.
I get a lot of compliments in the colorful button necklace I made, but loads of people wonder if it is attached to the shirt. So that gave me the idea to make this Tshirt. I bought the shirt, so no kudos for me there.
In the beginning I wanted the buttons to go around the neck like a necklace too, but half way it started to look a bit old-fashioned like a pearl necklace, so I ended up making some sort of pear shape.
