In my grandmother’s button collection, I found this fabric covered button–the perfect match for the jacket I’m delivering to O Wool at TNNA this weekend. I’d like to know what the previous life of this button was… I’m guessing the garment must have been pretty nice. I can imagine why it ended up in the button bag. Sitto was only 4′ 10″ tall, and had to alter many of the clothes she bought. I’m guessing, this was from a coat circa 1960 or so, and she lopped off the bottom removing one of the buttons.
Here are some pictures of the finished jacket.
