Buttonholes - Page 2

post #16 of 26
Is there such a thing as a dedicated machine to sew buttonholes on coats? Obviously there's some sort of automation process for all those RTW shirts that are made. But is there something that has a jig or guide pattern that can be specifically set to sew buttonholes for coats? If so, does this dedicated machine differ from a normal sewing machine in any substantial way?

I second that, especially for the pink shirt.

I just got working buttonholes put into a suit jacket and for some reason they made just 3 functional and left the fourth as a faux button hole, looking like this: ----O ---O ---O ---O Is that a big enough deal that I should be taking it back to the tailor? I'm a little hesitant to make a scene considering they did everything else well and were nice enough to give me a discount on the alterations package, but I thought I'd get a response or two after seeing the issue come up already in this thread.

There may not have been enough fabric to do the 4th button. There has to be overlaying fabric for a place for the button to rest.

Yeah, if there was space to do it (and you probably paid for them too?) I'd take it back. It will look silly like that.

Pics posted below, so you can advise on whether there is/isn't enough space and whether I should/shouldn't worry about it. For the first two pics, you should be able to see the traces of where the fake buttonhole is positioned.
