    Can someone explain why the one buttonhole is spaced from the others?

    Hi,
    This is such beautiful work, please could you tell me what thickness thread/brand you used for this buttonhole? I'm learning to make them from a book but I've found the gutermann silk twist quite fine for the wool flannel I'm working on, so I work quite tightly with the stitching to cover all the hairs but then it looks too strained...

    Also... What does your reverse look like?: )

    Thanks!
    Anna

    The precision on the pic stitching makes me happy to be alive.

    Badly made buttonholes tend to look like crushed Beatles it's tailoring slang.
