Choosing Buttons

I raided (with permission) my mom’s button stash in my sewing room for buttons for PB’s second sporty cardigan.

I came out with two nice grey/black neutral options. My mom suggested putting them in the button holes to really get a feel for what they would look like. She’s pretty smart you know. The ones on the left have a nice two toned look that I dig. But the ones on the right have a little bit of smoothness and sheen. I’m letting myself sleep on it but I’m kinda leaning towards the ones on the left.

What do you think?

  1. I would be tempted to save the ones on the right for a project that will have a longer life than the cardigan for PB. The ones on the left look good, but if you used the ones on the right for an adult garment you’d get to enjoy their lovely sheen for years, rather than months.
