Oh my, I love the button detail. Great job and it looks way harder than a zipper.

I agree with Jstarr--if you can do these buttons, you can do anything! Beautiful dress!

Very classy in the black & white satin! Really takes this pattern up a notch. The covered buttons look great:)

Lovely to see this dress made in a satin. And I absolutely love your buttons down the back idea. Genius! :)x

This is a beautiful rendition of this pattern. Love the button idea, it looks really fancy with this fabric choice and certainly gives a formal air. Lovely.

My word- if you can do that amazing button detail I'm sure you could do an invisible zip in your sleep. But using buttons to avoid the contrast color zipper issue was a very well thought out solution. Bravo on this lovely dress.

You say you don't do zippers well...WOW you sure know how to do amazing button detail! Bravo!

This is a nice take on this pattern. Your buttons down the back look really good and certainly add to the high end look of the dress. I think I would have taken the easy way and just gone for a concealed zip!
