Not your Typical Buttonhole Facing?

stitchagain | Posted in Talk With Us on

I think about the Buttonhole on page 47 current issue 136 while going to sleep.  I don’t have a project to use it on yet but it is very cool.

My question is what happens to the edges of the facings?.  Do they some how connect with the facings of the other buttonholes? or finished sepatrately?

I don’t think it was explained well.

    I think in the facings, a slit is cut to match the buttonhole, and then the edges of this are just turned under and slip-stitched on to the wrong side of the bound buttonhole. That's the traditional way to finish it, and it seems to me that this is what's meant.

      Yes, it appears that the only difference is that this particular sample is shaped differently, a triangle rather than a flat edge.
