Button Wednesday : Tiny Button Dresses

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

Antique Button Dresses
When I saw these beautiful tiny antique button dresses, I fell in love with them. It is work by artist Janet van Fleet and photographed by Maggie of colormuse on Flickr. So I searched the net for more funky button dresses.

And then I found this one from toast and buttons by Hazel Terry; isn't that marvelous ? Hazel has a great blog too.

And then I found this cute petite button dress in the scrapology blog by Ranjini Malhotra: it's adorable !

And this lovely lady is wearing a heavy button dress too. She is in the Button Crafts part of the Lightner Museum in St. Augustine in Florida (photograph by Graceann Macleod on Flickr).

The next dress sculpture from ceramic and buttons is by artist Kathleen Holmes. Look at her site for more wonderful dress creations !

Mr. Buttons! is made by .RADICAL!. from acrylic on wood with antique buttons and wears a fantastic button dress too.

This lovely lady is in the Wisconsin Quilt Museum and wears a very beautiful mother of pearl button dress (photograph by Ida Lively on Flickr)

And this last picture is my absolute favorite; it's a fabulous dress made out of buttons by artist Lauren Levy. She makes the most beautiful button creations and I blogged about her before. I would love to see this dress in real life :)

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 !!

I'm glad you liked my button dresses. They are on exhibit at the Shore Galleries in Provincetown, MA this summer of 2011. It is very wonderful to see how the same notion of "button dress" can be so variously interpreted. Good for you for sleuthing them all out! People can see more on my website at
