Yes, these are tricky -- but worth
it for fine gar-
ments._ There
are a number
of ways,
most
re-
quiring
sewing
exact-size
rectangles.
There are
several-size
templates
included
with your
Ken-
more
attachments.
Use them
as for other
but-
tonholes
but set machine
as indicated
at right.
For nearest,
easiest
bound
buttonholes,
use an
iron-on
interfacing
on underside
of fabric. This
is essential
with
stretch
fabrics
or those
that
tend to fray easily,
