Have you ever sewn hand worked buttonholes before? It’s something that I’m really keen to try and yesterday I stumbled across this great tutorial at BurdaStyle that shows how to sew them. My sewing machine sews reasonable buttonholes, but I think that some garments call for something a little bit more special. I have sewn bound buttonholes before and was pleased with the result but I really want to learn how to do these too. I think this technique would also be great for repairing old buttonholes. I’ve got a jacket with buttonholes that have frayed a little and are starting to look a bit tatty. Seems like a perfect opportunity to give hand worked buttonholes a try! Have you ever used this technique before? If you have and you’ve got any hints or tips you’d like to share, please let me know in the comments!
