|I was inspired by Phyllis C's muslin button tip to share this up. When making a blouse, or other garment that has buttons on it, you can completely change the look by making changeable button strips.
To do this, forego sewing buttons on your garment, and instead put a set of buttonholes on the "button" side, spaced to correspond with the "regular buttonholes". I recommend making these buttonholes vertical, and making them slightly larger than your standard buttonholes so you can align the bottoms of the garment.
Next, sew your buttons onto a grosgrain ribbon. Insert the buttons through both the "button" and "regular buttonhole" layers of the garment. You can then change button style on a whim, creating a whole new look for a garment!
