Gail Art, clothier and blogger at Art, Beauty and Well-Ordered Chaos has made wonderfully clear tutorial on how to make hand-sewn buttonholes. Sarai comes through with reproductions of vintage sewing book buttonhole directions; three styles are depicted including plain, with a bar, and with a corded edge. We love how delicate, yet elegantly sturdy hand-sewn buttonholes look. Hand-sewing is an art that deserves to be rediscovered for everyday use. Remember, practice and silky buttonhole twist thread makes all the difference in the final quality of your work.
