In our new series, we're showing you how to tackle essential mending jobs. Here’s how to repair and update your blouses, shirts and coats by replacing the buttons.
Update outfits with a button refresh
Don’t just limit yourself to reattaching buttons that have fallen off, but update your existing clothes by replacing the buttons. You can make simple, inexpensive items look quite striking and of much better quality.
The buttons need to be the same size as the original ones so they will fit the buttonholes. Coats can be transformed just by changing the buttons, or you could just replace the top button on a shirt or blouse to add interest.
