IT CAN BE FUN
TO TRY OUT
(and show off)
YOUR
NEW
BUTTONHOLE
SKILLS
Start
with
the
ones
you
like in the
chart
below
Choosing
buttonhole
style and size _
Each buttonholing
situation
will be differ-
ent so you will want to experiment
with
your
garment,
considering
fabric
and
placement
of button,
Here are some
basic
applications:
Built-in
buttonholes
(described
previously)
are ideal for one or two buttons
used on waist-
band
or cuff, or for "belt
slots."
Straight
buttonholes
(lower
left)
are
most
popular
for everyday
sewing
-- for series
of
buttons
on dress,
blouse,
vest, jacket or coat.
Keyhole
buttonholes
are
a variation
of the
above,
with an enlarged
opening
at one end to
allow
more
room
for button
shank.
These
are
normally
used in tailored
vests,
jackets, coats.
Eyelet
buttonholes
(another
variation
of
"straight")
most
often
are used
for studs
on
skirts
or holes for tongues
of belt buckles.
Purl-edge
buttonholes
are made
by stitching
a
larger
straight
buttonhole
on top of a narrow
one -- for a unique
look.
Bound
buttonholes
-- made
with
extra
fabric
"hemming"
the hole -- provide
"professional
look"
to dresses,
lackets,
coats
and for con-
trasting,
decorative
buttonholes.
