    Oh, sorry, I should have looked closer for the button loops! But now I understand and yes, the end result is splendid!

      It was my pleasure to explain and thanks to you I replaced the last pic with a much better one! ;)

    The dress is absolutely gorgeous and obviously that was a great save. I get the buttons and sequins and that you interfaced the seam lines. But how did you get the overlap, if the dress wasn’t originally cut like that, and did you put new buttonholes through the interfaced seam allowances? I’d love to know more….

      Ah I don’t know if it was a great save, the embellished button idea just occured and I liked it and wanted to use it! I also often feel impacient when working on a design and I have to improvise with what I have, especially if it happens at late hours!

      There is no overlap:) The curved sides, the "8"s between buttons were brought together by the fusible canvas. I had to take out the buttons and stitch them back after fixing the interface. On the other side there are thread loops (made by hand, as I showed in this technique http://www.burdastyle.com/techniques/multifunctional-blanket-stitch ). I hope that’s clear enough, let me know if it’s not. I replaced the last picture, I guess it speaks louder than words!
