- Metal Buttons, including silver, pewter, and bronze tones

Zippers: YKK Beulon zippers in 14-, 16-, and 18-inch lengths. These are a very nice flexible, lighter weight zipper which sew in smoother. Try them, love them! Available in 45 different colors.
14" zipper: $2.00 16" zipper: $2.05 18" zipper: $2.15
Thread: Mettler's Metrosene-Plus Polyester thread in a 164-yard spool. One spool is plenty for 1 dress with apron, and is 30% more thread than other brand's small spool. This is a very high quality thread which does not pill and fuzz as much as other brand's threads. Available in 238 colors. $2.90/spool.

I would be happy to help you with matching Buttons and Notions. For Notions to match your fabric, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will provide you with an address for mailing your material (a piece of material approximately 2"x2" is ideal). There is no extra charge for this service.
