Okay, not hard to make, but very hard to keep the enameled buttons
from being destroyed during the cleaning (any cleaning) process.
What I have thought about is a method by which one would make the
buttons attach for use and then detach for cleaning the garment. In
pursuit, but not yet in practice, I have purchased basic tuxedo type
attachements until I come up with a better idea. Must be a better
idea out in Orchid land somewhere. Me, I am not terribly mechanically
minded. The problem is that you would need to make probably two
styles of buttons, one for sweaters and one style for actual shirt
fronts. And these would be quite expensive in labor and time. Soooo,
maybe just one at the top button? I have a few sets of Cloisonne
buttons made in Japan (lucky, I know!), which I have attached to
nothing. They are set in standard button back sets. Any ideas out
Have fun noodling this one over!
