All Things New Sundays - New buttons on an old sweater!

For my All Things New Sundays project I changed out the buttons on an old green sweater that I have had for a few years. I love the fit of this sweater and felt like it still had lots of wear in it but was bored with its simple buttons. I added some brass nautical/military looking buttons and am now loving the sweater once again!

Super cute outfit and the new buttons look so cool =) Hope you have a great weekend!

bevy said...

I try to do the same, but i'm horrible at lining up the new button with the button hole. i usually con my mom to do it for me. she's much craftier and perfectionist in that area.
