What advice would you give someone starting this project? Find a recycled or a jacket you'd like to reinvent, take old buttons and place on the lapels, cuffs, where ever it looks nice and sew on. For the cuff take ribbon or ultra suede and make a band sew on the buttons and a snap and you have a one of a kind cuff! These buttons have adorned a purse, another jacket and now this blazer. It is a show stopper wherever I wear it!!!
