Pictures of Butterick Top and Which Buttons for my new BWOF Blouse?

First, I have been working on this blouse from BWOF 1/2009 #120





I can't decide on the buttons, so help me pick please. I added numbers by each button, so click on the picture for a larger view.




Catching up on some pictures. I made Butterick 5527 in December from a fabric.com sweater knit. I do like it, the picture isn't very flattering of the garment or the garment on me!


I wrote a review if you want to check it out.

  5. I like #1. I think it adds personality.

    I like number 1. The rest are less distinctive. But I would want to see them laid out on the blouse to see if they "fight" with the yoke detail. I like your red top, too. Syling it with the big belt looks great.

    oh, duh, they ARE laid out on your blouse. i thought the red blosue was yours, but that is the Burda sample! So I still like #1 best. I also like #5 if they are mother of pearl.

  8. I'm looking forward to see more of the blouse, as I'm planning to make this one soon.
    For the buttons I would choose no. 1 with your fabric.

  9. Me too, I'm going with #1.

  10. No. 1, a nice design touch but also restricting jewelry options IMO. The shirt will look beautiful on you. And the knit one is great as well- you really look good in solids so keep it up ;)

  11. The no.1 buttons are the most original. However, as you have to add so many buttons to that blouse, I believe they'd be too much, too sparkly. So I'd go for no. 6 instead.

  12. I like no 5. The red top looks good on you too.

    I like #1 the best. The silver with the blue looks really nice, and has a tiny southwest flair~which would be really great with the pin-tucks, IMHO...Can't wait to see the results. The red top looks so nice!

  14. I like #4 for a neutral look but the #1 buttons would give a fun touch.

  15. First choice is #1, second is #6.

  16. I like #1. I think that's a good size as well. I think the white of #5 would be nice if you had done white topstitching but otherwise the size is too small.

  17. wow! love the red sweater, but I am stumped on the buttons.

  18. My vote is ## 6 and 7 because I like how the colors look together.

  19. I really like #1, but if you plan on wearing jewelry I think #5 is a good choice.
    Pretty sweater!

  20. I love this BWOF blouse! It's on my to-sew list, along with a million other patterns, but we won't talk about those. :)

    Ok buttons. For me it's hands down, no questions asked, number 1. The others don't even rate a mention. :)

  21. I, too, prefer button #1. #6 comes in second. Looking forward to seeing the completed shirt. This looks like a great top.

  22. I hate to just jump on the band wagon, but I had chosen @1 before I went to read the comments of others. Personal preference is always a heavy-weighing factor too--which ones do YOU like?

    The blouse is really cool with the tucks/pleats. I like it!
