Special Finishing Details

LOOPED BUTTONHOLES

Corded and uncorded buttonholes can be used in either tailored or formal garments. They can be effectively made from almost any type of fabric. The button loop may be made of self fabric or from a piece of soutache braid. Thread loops may also be used. On a garment, the size of loop required is calculated by drawing a line on paper and placing a button on that line. Cording is looped around the button and the necessary size is noted.

  • Cut a strip of true bias 1â€� wide. Fold the strip lengthwise, right sides together, and press. Stitch approximately 1/8â€� from the fold. Trim the seam to about 1/8â€�.
  • With a needle, fasten a strong thread to one end of the folded strip. Draw the needle, eye end first, through the fold, turning the strip right side out. Press.

  • Follow the above directions, except enclose a length of small-sized cording into the fold, using a zipper foot to stitch close to the corded edge. Stitch across one end, leaving an equal amount of cording uncased. (See illustration A)
  • Turn the fabric back onto the uncased cording.
  • Depending upon the weight of the fabric, the cording may either be clipped for each individual loop or left in a continuous strip. If the later is done, clip into the inner bend of the loops after the loops are positioned onto the garment opening.
  • Hold the loops in place with a darning needle or a heavy basting needle while machine stitching to the opening of the garment.
