    No.

    Perhaps you meant "When I unbuttoned my shirt a button fell off."

    Re: unbottening/ a button cut and fell of

    It's interesting that you spelt "unbuttoned" incorrectly but then spelt "button" correctly.

    The word "button" is repeated in "unbutton", "unbuttoned", "unbuttoning" etc. There is no such word as "unbottening".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
