Day 68 - How To Reattach A Button

If you're jumping on the bandwagon and editing your wardrobe down into a carefully chosen capsule, you'll inevitably be wearing fewer items, and wearing them more often.  This will naturally result in some wear and tear, especially if you keep things for a long time.  However, with a little TLC, you can keep your items in good shape for years to come. 

Replacing a button that has fallen off is one of the most basic ways to repair clothing, however I won't assume that it's common knowledge.  Not everyone has been taught how to do this properly, in fact I didn't really learn the proper technique until I went to design school and was required to learn.  So I made a little infographic for you, outlining the basic steps.  

Happy sewing!
