Using buttons that can’t be washed
A friend gave me 5 beautiful amber and gold buttons from her trip to Chile. They will be perfect on some dressy cotton suiting fabric. Other than using a strip of ribbon behind the buttons or putting the buttons on a shank/flat button and treating them like cufflinks are there any other ways to remove the buttons so the buttons are not washed everytime? I plan to make a two piece outfit and could possibly incorporate a design in the front closure.
The buttons will be the focal point. They are narrow and oval on the ends with gold in the middle. They are probably 1 1/4 inch long and would be placed up and down.
Thank you for your thoughts and suggestions.
