Ania chose the buttons. I think they fit perfectly. I added a cardigan to use during winter.
The pattern came from a Japanese pattern book, The Polka Drops. I was a little leery about using the book. It is, well, in Japanese. And it's not like you can just copy a sentence and paste it into Google translate. But I didn't need to worry.
To go with the polka dot theme I added small buttons covered with the contrasting red fabric and round elbow patches. The pockets have a roundish opening. :) Overall I am happy with how the outfit turned out. Ania likes both pieces, even though she was tired of modeling and kept moving around.
