    Yes you are actually making a

    Yes, you are actually making a buttonhole on the front and a second one in the facing.  Then when the facing gets folded back you  have to attach the facing to the front around the buttonhole so the openings are exactly together.  It wil be finished on both sides.  That's why you have to do all that exact measuring and marking.

      button holes

      so is this a bound  button hole , i found the  article very hard to understand

      i imagined  making a machine button hole on the  facing and  after that not sure

    you have options

    you can pull the facing of the buttonhole through all thickness and finish it on top of the lining.  I've seen variations and they all look great.  I personally prefer this method over the one where you make a separate button hole on the lining and then manipulating the pieces to line up.  however, this method through all thickness requires handwork for finishing and it is finickier but  I prefer the appearance.
