Aren't they fabulous! Every time I visit Dalston Mill Fabrics, I look longingly at these buttons, and finally I've resolved to make something based around them. I've had this pattern for a while, and I think these buttons will be perfect for it:
I know it's summer, but I really fancy a chic black dress with some texture or pattern in the fabric. I think this fits the bill: a cotton-mix swirly, brocad-ey lightweight fabric. And I've chosen a turquoise fabric for a lining, just for a bit of fun!
