Button It

And now you've heard about the history of dressmaking - cast your eyes over this blog post on dress fastenings by a volunteer with the Australian Dress Register.

So my button obsession is not so much compulsive collecting as amassing a research resource. 

Is so, too!

Image shamelessly pinched from The Shopping Sherpa because her pics are always excellent and mine suck.

So that's what all my 'stuff' is, research resources! Thank you, oh wise one :)

Thanks for the nice words but I have to admit I saw the photo and initially thought "Ohhhh.... nice black and white daisy buttons! I wonder where they can be found..."

Duh!
