It’s like Christmas in September here, with new buttons arriving weekly. We’ve just posted several to the web site that are perfect for the upcoming coat season. You may be especially interested in these if you’re participating in our current coat sew along, Coaterie. And if you hadn’t planned to join in, perhaps one of these button styles will encourage you to do so!
Back in June, when we saw the samples of Clarendon, we knew its chunky, sculptural shape would be the perfect closure on a coat or jacket. The large size measures 1-1/16″, so it can easily hold up to heavier fabric. The smaller sizes would work on a jacket front and sleeves. We love this button, so you’ll be seeing it pictured on our fabrics often.
Another great look for a coat is O2, which has a pearly, partially translucent center. We’re charmed by the distinctive shape of this button.
If you’re looking for an even larger button, we have two new options. Elan is available in 1-3/16″ and 2″ sizes. The shape is simple, but the textured surface creates lots of surface interest.
For those of you looking for a big, big button, for that one-button jacket or coat, we have a new style that measures 2-1/8″ in diameter.
How cool are the striated arcs molded into the surface of Reverb? And the colors are right on trend.
We’ll have more new buttons on the site soon, so visit often. We’re doing our best to provide you with up-to-date styles that will meet your sewing needs!
