i rea d and re read slotted button holes. from the latest on li e newsletter
would some one mind explaining to me ,is the button hole made in the facing
then againg in the main front of coat
Yes, you are actually making a buttonhole on the front and a second one in the facing. Then when the facing gets folded back you have to attach the facing to the front around the buttonhole so the openings are exactly together. It wil be finished on both sides. That's why you have to do all that exact measuring and marking.
so is this a bound button hole , i found the article very hard to understand
i imagined making a machine button hole on the facing and after that not sure
you can pull the facing of the buttonhole through all thickness and finish it on top of the lining. I've seen variations and they all look great. I personally prefer this method over the one where you make a separate button hole on the lining and then manipulating the pieces to line up. however, this method through all thickness requires handwork for finishing and it is finickier but I prefer the appearance.
