However, I'm less pleased after only 3 uses of the item. The lace on one sleeve has decided to be so kind as to start removing itself for me:
Today, my third use of the item, resulted in a more upsetting issue. I was sitting in the car on the way to class when I suddenly noticed that one of my buttons was missing near the bottom of the blouse:
Before I left home, I had noted that one of that the particular button (and some of the ones surrounding it) seemed kind of loose but since I was in a rush, I ignored it for the moment.Unfortunately, I couldn't find the missing button for the shirt, and I'm not enthused with the idea of putting a random button in its place.
However, instead of seeing the quality of the shirt as a complete loss (though I likely won't be ordering another one from Fanplusfriend), I am happy that the item is still suitable for use under a jsk. Additionally, I may take this as a moment where I finally learn to sew and put some more interesting buttons on the blouse instead. I'm already considering getting some buttons from the etsy shop Little Red Cottage. Their heart buttons are already calling to me:
The black heart buttons are the natural match for the current color scheme though I wonder if the red ones would nicely contrast against the black. I'm already excited by the possibilities. ^_^
