Country Goes Western with this Duo

Country Goes Western with this Duo

Hello sewers!  Dixie here, with a trend blast from the button department.

One of my favorite tasks at Sawyer Brook is matching buttons to fabric.  It’s fun to see how the button enhances the fabric and sets the mood for the garment.  True delight comes when we find a button and a fabric that look like they were made for each other.  We recently discovered this match made in heaven:

El Paso horn button on Rangeland faux suede

We love the unique design of the El Paso button, a natural horn wedge adorned with an antique gold-tone band embossed with a floral design.  It has met its match in Rangeland, an embossed faux suede embroidered with a floral pattern.  Together, the two invoke the American West, a popular mood within the current Country trend.  We’re envisioning a blazer to wear with everything from jeans to a floral frock, to a flowing evening dress or skirt.  How about it?!
