Bound buttonholes are a functional detail that will bring your garments to the next level.

Evamarie Gomez and Judith Neukam; Shot by: Gary Junken

Bound buttonholes add interest to any garment. In this Threads Insider video from Industry Insider Techniques Vol. 7, Louise Cutting walks through an industry method for creating this lovely functional detail.

Louise shares her years of sewing experience in Volume 7 and the rest of the 15-part series. It’s amazing how much you’ll learn as this gifted instructor demonstrates professional techniques, such as fine hand stitching and flawless miters. This level of workmanship is second nature to pros. Now you’ll see how it contributes to the quality of the garments you make, and how to master these techniques yourself. You’ll learn how to match stripes, prints, and plaids, reinforce underarm seams, sew a smooth neckline zipper finish, and many more expert techniques.

The entire video series is available for free to Insider members. Watch more videos from the series here.

    As usual, poor reception, unexpected stops in programing, steps for receiving information do not work.

    My viewing was terrific - no starts/stops here. The instructions take me back to the Bishop Method of tailoring (minus the iron-on paper) that I learned in the late 60's when in high school!)
