Hi, when putting buttons on a sleeve of a ladies jacket do I also need to make buttonholes?  I recently bought a step-by-step tailoring book and it doesn’t mention buttonholes for jacket sleeves.  Does anyone know if there is a jacket etiquette?

I’d really appreciate any thoughts on this.  Thank you

    Most jackets I've seen (men's as well as women's) only have the buttons, no buttonholes.  Buttonholes would make altering the sleeve length almost imposible.

      Thank you for your reply Chris,  I had looked at some R-T-W jackets both designer and lower end and these have mock buttonholes on the sleeve vent.  I think I will stick with your comment as it makes sense and it is probably a custom tailoring thing which is what I'm aiming for!
