I cooked up the idea of adapting it to use buttons at the back quite a while ago but couldn’t wrap my brain around the logistics of the conversion.
I finally figured it out last week and realised I’d been so silly over thinking it!
This top uses 8 buttons. It felt like a lot! I made contrast covered buttons from a black twill I had in my stash.
I used a gorgeously soft, grey rayon I bought at the Harrogate Knitting and Stitching show. It has lines of different bird cages with birds on it! It is rather see through though.
