It's been blazing hot in Los Angeles lately, and so I'm pretty excited for the temperatures to begin cooling down for fall. In anticipation of the cool weather, I'm already thinking cozy thoughts with sweaters and layers. Today, we have a super easy project to get you excited for fall, too...a vintage-inspired button sweater! It's super easy and all you need is either an inexpensive solid-colored sweater or a sweater you already have that needs an update. Here's how...

Here's how:

1. Lay buttons on sweater in whichever pattern and spacing you like. We made ours spaced about but not too even in placement.

2. Sew on buttons with a simple loop stitch, starting with the knotted end of the thread on the inside of the sweater. That's it!

*To launder, turn sweater inside out and wash in a garment bag.

We stuck to gold buttons to make it a little dressier. But I love how it can get dressed up or dressed down!
