Sweater with Forties Pinup Buttons

Finished my sweater with the forties pinup girl buttons just in time for my trip down to Southern California, for my best friends bachelorette party.

I used Kwik Sew Pattern 3339. The fabric I used is a midnight blue lightweight sweater knit made from 67% polyester, 31% viscose, 2% spandex. The pattern was easy and didn’t take long to finish. I spent a majority of the time making the button holes. My coworker made the same sweater and used snaps instead of button holes. I think that snaps are the better way to go if you want to save time.

Forties Pinup Buttons are on sale individually or as a set of 7 on


  1. Sweet sweater! Can't wait to see it in person. Hope your so cal trip was the best.

  2. I love the sweater!!! The buttons realy add the touch.
