With time, use and washing the holes in a glass button can become rough and cut the threads they are sewn on with. A small file can smooth them again. I can't tell from the resolution in your pictures of your buttons have holes or a shank. If shank, check to be sure it is fully closed so the button can't slip off the stitching. Also check that the shank is firmly glued on, especially if vintage, older glues fail over time. Hopefully this helps. I enjoy your blog and admire your work.
