The Faux Button Dress

Yay! I finished the faux button dress just in time for warm(er) weather! This is the last of my winter sewing projects so I'll be moving on to spring sewing soon! Anyways, here it is.

Dress: McCalls 5438 made by me
Shoes: DSW

I love that the buttons on this dress are purely decorative. It actually closes with snaps! So no pesky button holes to do.

I made these darling little buttons using Casey's tutorial. They were super easy and really cute. I did have a bit of difficultly with the small inside, but that's because I was using felt and it's pretty bulky. I also used Casey's tutorial for fixing sleeve ease, which was great! I have nice smooth sleeves instead of awkwardly poofy sleeves.
