I have a cardigan sweater that I didn't like to button all the way up because the buttons didn't "feel" good. While they were nice shell buttons, they were very thin, and uncomfortable to handle.
So I decided to take action one day, and I replaced all the buttons. First, I measured the diameter of the old buttons, to make sure I used the right size buttons. Then I went to my local quilt shop and picked out some new buttons.
A little bit later, here is the sweater with its new look. You have to understand that this sweater is eons old, so the new buttons really give it a new lease on life! Really, I've had it forever!
A close-up so you can see the buttons a little better. This was so much fun. I'm sure I'll do it again. I'm eyeing all my cardigans right now, wondering which one will be next for a transformation!
