Six Button Skirt

It's no secret that I love buttons, so I decided to sketch a skirt that featured six large buttons as the focal design element.

I always get excited during autumn for all of the great fall fabrics that make an appearance.  I decided to go with a caramel brown wool for this pattern.  What I love most about this textile are the metallic flecks throughout (I also bought a few meter of the same fabric in black, because I have an admitted fabric obsession). 

I also had a lot of fun shopping for the 1" buttons (as a side note, 1" is the largest size button hole that my domestic machine can make).  I think I may have spent over an hour holding up various styles and colours of buttons up to my fabric of choice.

I'm so glad that the weather is turning cooler so that I can wear my six button skirt.
