Padme Gown - The making of the buttons

Padme Gown - The making of the buttons

I made the buttons using the same fabric as the sleeves and cuffs, so they would match perfectly.

Button pieces all lined up
Fabric on button former, button blank on top, ready to push in.
Pushing the fabric and blank into the form.
Fabric and blank inside the form, ready for the button back.
Button back in place, ready to push down.
The same pusher is used to push the button back into the button. This will snap all of the pieces together, finishing the button.
Ta da!!!!
Finished button, back side
Finished button, front side.

That's it! Rinse and repeat 9 more times for a total of 10 buttons. : )
