A few months ago, I came across this image which solidified my thoughts on snaps as a garment closure for this project. I generally prefer hook & eyes at a waistline because they are not going to snap open at an inopportune moment, but a knit fabric seemed like a safe bet. And when they look so pretty, it is hard to resist.
I did not follow the given instructions, but just played around with a crochet hook and a small length of thread until I was happy with the result. I have covered snaps with fabric in the past, but I think I prefer this look.
I was taught that the male portion of the snap should go on the overlapping side of the garment, but since this is the half that gets covered, I decided to buck that trend. And it works!
