Tutorial: How to make bound buttonholes

Etsy seller Cynical Girl shares a how-to at Vintage Pattern Marketplace blog showing how to make bound buttonholes.  It’s fitting that the how-to is an excerpt from a vintage publication, Workbasket.  The instructions also include how to rework a standard buttonhole to a bound buttonhole (wow, I had no idea you could do that!), and also how to make a corded bound buttonhole.  Follow the link below to download the instructions:

    Thanks so much for posting my bound buttonhole tutorial. If everyone knew how truly easy they are to do and how incredibly durable they are, perhaps the couturier garment could become a fixture in every woman’s wardrobe.

    Thanks for posting the bound buttonhole tutorial…That is definitely some information I could use! Also the pencil case with the exposed zipper – so cute!

    After “cracking the code” on the first one or two bound buttonholes, you’ll see how easy they are. And your friends will think you are a sewing magician!
