DIY: Button Embellished Shoulder Dress

As a salute to spring, our latest DIY involves a spring fashion favorite: the dress! The light and sweet dress we used as a base gets an extra kick of personality with an embellished shoulder of buttons. You can also use this technique on your favorite blazer or cardigan!

DSC_0315 What You’ll Need: 

Dress

Shiny Button 4-Holes

Needle and Thread

DSC_0319 1. Lay out your dress. Line up 5 buttons (or an many as you want depending on the size of the button) on one shoulder for placement.

DSC_03162. Once you know the placement of button on the shoulder, you can start to sew each one on. We sewed them on so the buttons are over lapping.

Welcome spring with a decor accent that highlights the colors of the season! We’ve made a pillow cover that’s perfectly pastel, and just the thing to brighten up your space after a chilly winter.

Rit Dye powder (Fuchsia and Royal Blue)

Paint brush
