Head over to Oliver + S to find out how to make a thread chain. A thread chain can be used in place of a buttonhole for a button closure, usually when there’s one button on the back of a garment. It has the advantage of not requiring the fabric pieces to overlap the way that a buttonhole does. Go to the tutorial.
