Need Your Opinions Please--Which Button do you Like Best

Thanks to Gene's suggestion and combining it with something that popped into my head late last night-I decided to bring up the seam  next to the body and sew on a button-mistake won't be noticeable and I think it is a design plus for this garment.

Going through some of my large stash of buttons-new ones first-I found these buttons that match in nicely-made in Italy. I was looking for a little larger button but I actually like these.

So do you love either button better??

Now that I look at these buttons in the photos I think they are all too small?-I found one I bought made with coconut shell but I only have one-need to think on this more.

My Handwoven Wrap

  I have spent a few days doing all the hand sewing on this garment-I was really pleased with this as I worked on it- feels luxurious wearing it-However-details-I looked in the mirror and oh my the bottom design is off by 1/2"-and it just jumped right out at me. It is really noticeable too.

The ends started out exactly the same length, but when I took it off the loom it started to unweave on me right away-I wove the two rows back together as best I could-zig zag stitched the ends. I used some vintage hem tape to protect the ends and hand stitched that on-never thought to re measure everything before I hand hemmed the ends that made into little cuffs-

Now to decided what to do-too much work to take all the hand sewing out, and I used wool yarn to sew with so it is meshed together already too.    sigh
