What I Wore Sunday

Click to enlarge (don't mind the wrinkles, modern light-weight fabrics can't take what vintage fabrics can).

Really old U.S. military buttons turned into cufflinks a while ago. These are old.

Nice, I thought about doing that with my great grandfather's military buttons. He served in WWI. I just thought it was a little whimsical but, yours are definately nice. I just might do that as well.

It shouldn't be too difficult to do.

Just add a little metal post with a circular stop to the back of the buttons and you'll be good to go.

Nice pics!

It's great to see blogs with good photography. I'm going to make up some Navy button cuff links too!

Do you have a source for the backs?

Will said...

Thanks for the compliment!

Unfortunately I don't.

Although, perhaps a simple method would to get 4 buttons if they are available (two per cufflink) and, using the eyes on the back, attach them with a small chain to create a link with two sides.

Yep, that's what I was thinkg too. Actually, double sided cufflinks would probably look better anyway....
