Button Wednesday : Button Shirts



It is Wednesday again, so it's BUTTON DAY on my blog !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The plastron of a vintage shirt is embroidered with various buttons in mother-of-pearl, metal and plastic, composing the drawing of an eye. T-shirt : 20 hours

This Button Wednesday is about buttons in fashion. All kinds of shirts decorated with all kinds of buttons. We start with two awesome shirts from Belgium fashion designer Martin Margiela.
Scream-button-dress: Vintage buttons are embroidered on a silk chiffon to create a bit-mapped effect motif. Two rectangular pieces of silk muslin are assembled to form a dress. The front is embroidered with various buttons of mother-of-pearl, metal, plastic to draw a mouth. Dress : 25 hours



And here I found a tutorial to make a "Margiela" shirt by your self in a quick way (click on the picture to go to the diy page):


This creation is a bodysuit with button adornment from Australian Fashion Company "Romance Was Born". It belongs to their Renaissance Dinosaur collection and I love that name :)


And I love these T-shirts from creativemonsoon.



And last but not least this skull Halloween jumper made by Lisa K. (losabia on Flickr).


Have you seen a lovely, beautiful, stunning, crazy button or button-related thingy, or did you make something with a button / buttons, or did you even make buttons yourself, blog about it on your blog on Wednesday, and give the link here in the comments so that everybody can enjoy it !!
