I have several small jars and two boxes (each approx. 8.5" x 11" x 4" deep) full of buttons suitable for shirts, blouses, and skirt/pants closures.

Several years ago, I had lost enough buttons from one of my favorite blouses so that all of them needed replacing. I think I needed 9 buttons: five down the front and two on each cuff.

I tried--really, I did--to use buttons from my relatively...ah...generous button stash! But I didn't have any buttons AT ALL that were the correct size, a suitable color, AND numerous enough for the job.

Result:
I had to buy...buttons.
