Cover button holes on sleeves

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi,

Is it possible to move a working button from the sleeves of a coat behind the last button. I want to shorten my sleeves but do not trust the altering in the shoulders. So I thought maybe this could be a solution, but would depend on how it would look when covering the the hole from the button that was moved.

regards,

Depends on the coat, but you might have luck finding a tailor who will have to unsewn and resewn from the shoulder all the sleeve.

Yes, but this is what I would like to avoid, because of the difficulty and bad experience with this kind of operation. So that is why I thought about moving the front button and sewing the hole together.
