Button Question
« on: March 12, 2020, 13:22:25 PM »
I have just received buttons for my Pauline Alice Quart coat, and they are lovely, but I have two questions which I hope you lovelies can help with.

Firstly, not too sure about the colour. The buttons seem to have a bit too much brown in them.  What do you think?

Second, I quite like the backside of the button, it's very silvery, in which case the colour won't be such an issue.

Can I have some honest opinions please?

I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

I like the reverse side too. The 'solid' darker colour on the 'right' side looks OK with the fabric on my phone screen, but colours are difficult on screens, aren't they?

@Acorn thank you so do I!  @SkoutSews I bought off Ebay, and they looked perfect, but my coat fabric is just a bit 'pinker'.

Definitely the back side.

I'm going to be contrary and say the red side.

I think the colour is fine but I would use the reverse too.

Reverse. The red side wouldn't stand out as much ;)

Oops, I thought the silvery side was the right side and the dark shaped side the underside.

Reverse for me too, looks much classier.

Another vote for the silvery side think this will blend in and look really classy.  Have fun Jessie.
