I purchased uncovered buttons and covered them with the fashion fabric of the slipcover. The buttons are sewn to the outside of the slipcover. On the underside I attached six inch pieces of corded elastic behind the buttons. I used the elastics to wind around the original buttons thereby drawing the slipcover in to imitate the original button tufted look of the upholstery.
