I bought this sweater ages ago at Goodwill. I think I wore it once and then the dog got ahold of it and chewed one of the buttons off. She’s a charming animal.
The logical thing to do would be to sew all new buttons on, but I have an abhorrence for sewing buttons. I don’t get it either, but there it is.
An easy solution? Clip-on earrings!
All three below used to belong to my grandmother. The two faux pearl earrings are my favorites, though I do use all of them.
You just push the clip through the hole where the button used to be. The threads will have left a small hole in the fabric; you’ll just have to shove the earring through.
And then through the buttonhole on the other side.
That’s that! Much faster than sewing on buttons, and it has the look of a brooch or sweater clip.
