Silk buttons


Slowly I started to prepare passementerie (buttons and ribbon) for my new early 17th century outfit. I need 8-10 silk buttons to fit cuffs in very fashionable but close-fitting sleeves characteristic for gowns and women wams/jacket dated 1610-1625.
I used very simple and popular method of wrapping the silk thread over wooden core to create the button. This method is described in details in The Tudor Tailor book and also mentioned in Patterns of Fashion v.3 by Janet Arnold.
