Holiday party season has arrived! It’s time to starting planning fun and festive outfits. This Crystal Button Sash adds a touch of glamour to your skirt or dress. Crystal buttons are an easy way to add a little bling to your favorite jacket, skirt or blouse. You can replace existing buttons or just add them as accents around a cuff, a pocket, or a neckline.
To make this Crystal Button Sash you will need the following materials:
La Petite 5/8 Inch Crystal Buttons 561100078, 35 Buttons
La Petite 9/16 Inch Crystal Buttons 561100077, 6 buttons
Offray Double Face Satin Ribbon, 1-1/2 Inch Wide, Oyster
Ruler and Measuring Tape
To begin, measure your waist. Next, cut a length of ribbon three times your waist size.
Fold the ribbon in half length-wise to find the center starting point. Use a ruler and pencil to mark the center of the ribbon width.
Follow this layout for button placement or create your own design.
Position the first button over the pencil marking. Attach with matching thread.
Complete the first row by adding the remaining buttons.
Continue attaching the buttons as shown to complete the design. Trim the ribbon ends to desired length.
Add your Crystal Button Sash to a simple skirt for an upcoming holiday party. It changes the look of an outfit in an instant! Our button choice and layout are just a suggestion. Get creative and make this sash unique to your sense of style. Create a similar look for your hair by using narrow ribbon and smaller buttons. Tie the ribbon in your hair as a headband. Or tie it around your wrist.
There are so many ways to use fancy buttons and ribbon to change-up the look of your wardrobe!
