Sadly that link was to amazon.com and the postage costs are exhorbitant. Nil despirandum however a quick search of eBay revealed loaded of suppliers. I’m not clear whether you actually need an installing tool or can you just hit it with a hammer?
You push the sharp part through the fabric. With pliers you can press the button on the pointed stub. To protect the face of the button, I put a piece of scrap fabric between the pliers and the button. It takes some fiddling to get the button over the first rib of the stub.

No problem. Some things I could find out on my own but YouTube/Internet is also a great help. And reality is a good place to get experience the hard way. ;)

If there are questions, fire away.

And another kilt-look-alike wrap skirt came from the production line.

This time a little longer and made of dark blue twill.

Tomorrow I plan to go to the beach and will take this one and the shorter grey one with me. They are easy-on and easy-off.

Nice skirt :)
But... it's me or does it appear much more gray than blue?

Similar jean buttons on Amazon UK? Not the same design on the buttons though.
