jeans button

sewpro | Posted in General Sewing Info on

I need to replace a jeans button and I don’t remember how. I have the stud and the “button” but now what?

    I just removed a cuff from my jean jacket to hem the sleeves.  I am thinking of making new cuffs out of velvet because I can't get the "shank/stud" loose from the "button" part.  How did you manage that part? 

    I am interested to hear what others suggest to help you.  Good luck to both of us!  Mary

      I use the wire cutting part of a pair of needle nosed pliers. It takes a lot of muscle, or if necessary, a hammer tap on the pliers handles Oh, and I figured out how to apply the new jeans button! Just hammer. After carefully positioning the parts of course.

        Thanks for the tip!  I will try that and hope I don't tear the denim and have to make new cuffs because then I would want to switch the collar to match too.  Mary

    I read further down you figured it out!  Just a note tho.  If you add a drop of seam sealant, like fray check to the hole, before you put the stud back in, it helps to keep the hole from enlarging over time and pulling through.   Cathy

        You are most welcome.  I have had to replace a lot of those on barn pants!  Cathy
