My coat-in-progress calls for six big old buttons, 1-1/4" each to be exact. I've decided to go the self-fabric covered button route, and I'll be sending away to have them done professionally at Pat's Custom Buttons and Belts. (Read my post about Pat's here.) I know they are going to be just fabulous. My only problem is that Pat has so many button styles to choose from! So. I could really use your help here.
Here's the pattern I'm using, to refresh your memory:
I'm making view D, the one shown in ivory in the front. As you can see, the button choice is crucial with this design.
My instincts are telling me to go with a classic half ball shape.
But isn't this "combination flat" design interesting?
What do you think: half ball or combination flat? Or something else entirely? (Click on the first image to see all the options full-size.) Thanks for your help, friends!
