HSF ’15: challenge 6 out of your comfort zone

The Challenge: 6 Out of your comfort zoneSAM_2860Dorset buttons. A soft entry I will admit but I’ve never done them before and always wanted to.

Fabric: n/a

Pattern: cartwheel and basic weave

Year: they were commonly used between 1622 and 1850.  I will likely use them for later periods claiming the middle aged persons love of the old and familiar.

Notions: rings and crochet thread

How historically accurate is it? The rings I used were modern plastic. The thread was cotton but wool and linen would be more accurate. The patterns are good. I give it about 50%.

Hours to complete: 14

First worn: n/a

Total cost: The thread was in my stash…left overs from another project. The rings were less than $3.
