Using buttons for decoration

I have always tried to avoid using buttons in my apron designs. I find them complex, and no matter what formula I use, they never turn out exactly how I had hoped. As I find myself creating more costumes than aprons, I have to face my fear of closures.

A recent addition to my Etsy shop. {Click here to see the etsy listing}

I started attaching buttons as decorations to become accustomed to the dreaded button closure issue that I have been avoiding for some time now. The execution was great for this piece, and I am improving my button skills.

This half apron was inspired by a Victorian era apron mixed with a lingerie look. The linen nap provides contrast against three gold buttons, while a unique black lace border keeps the linen in check against a smoky satin backdrop. The contrast works well as a costume, since satin is not ideal as an actual maid uniform. Perfect for play.

The waist features a concealed drawstring to adapt the look of this apron. You can pull it tight and cinch with the satin ribbon within, or let the satin lie flat. Some like their satin smooth, while others like the ruched look.

Thank you for stopping by to see what my imagination has created recently!

Silky Satin Sissy Dress Slip in Crimson Red

 

Continuing from my earlier post, this half slip/ petticoat is crimson in colour and features a beautifully concealed elastic waist band.

While making this version, I had to sacrifice on the size of the piece. I wanted to make the waist band around 46 inches, but was only able to make it stretch to a maximum of 42 inches. It still counts as plus size for a lady, but is a bit on the smaller size for sissy costumes.

It works as a companion to the champagne coloured slip/petticoat from the previous post you can see by clicking here.

This item is also for sale in my etsy shop. You can see it by clicking here.

 

Silky Satin Sissy Dress Slip in Champagne- Petticoat

 

This March: Revisiting my love for textile design

My recent design is a champagne colour Satin Dress Slip with cream lace trim.

I usually finish my pieces as economically as possible to save on cost and time; but, this time I opted toward beauty by beautifully concealing the elastic waist band.

Medium and Large sizes available ranging from 30 – 44 inches.
