Bound Buttonholes in new winter coat?
Finally, I am making my winter coat- a cancelled wedding for my daughter, three funerals, and retirement took precedence since I purchased the fabric!
I don’t want it to look homemade but I don’t see bound buttonholes on readymade coats or at least not where I look. Are they a thing of the past? Should I hire the local tailor? On heavy fabrics should the lips be bigger?
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
