Teach your daughters to be intimidating in a pretty dress
Finally, insert the needle just next to the knot, through only the wrong-side layer, and pull through to bury the tail between the two layers for a clean back side.When you've gone all the way around, tie a knot on the wrong side and insert the needle into the wrong side layer only.Technology in sewing buttonholes by machine is incredibly advanced these days: Pop a button into the special foot, press a button, and a perfectly sized buttonhole is done in a moment.But there are many reasons why you might want to sew a buttonhole by hand, and most people don't even realize it's possible!

So the next time you are tempted to brag or put someone down who is "out there" helping other people with tutorials, don't bother, because we aren't interested and we happen to ENJOY and APPRECIATE all that Cal does.I also must comment on my feelings that common courtesy is just not common enough... If all you better-than-thou people can do it better, let's see it. Come on, we all want to learn your wonderful techniques. ROMANTIC writes: I make dresses for my 3 daughters and myself.
