If you have an extra button or two for a garment, I have found that I always know where to find a replacement if I have sewn it discreetly inside the garment. This saves money (especially if you have to buy a whole card) and time (especially if you are like me and have 2 million buttons floating around everywhere from jewelry box to babyfood jars in the utility room.

Again, thank you. It's been done for years in RTW and I usually throw and extra buttons in my black hole of a button box ;-). Excellent idea.

You are right. I just did that for the first time on 2 blouses I made this summer. And gave myself a big pat on the back!

That makes sense. RTW does it, why shouldn't we?!
