>HS101: Tailors button hole

>

I will be using a tailors button hole to finish the hem on the previous post.  What most people call a button hole stitch is actually a blanket stitch and not very strong.  Notice the running stitch first then the extra loop in the knot section.  The knot section is to face the open part where the button passes through the garment.  The fact that there is one more loop makes it take a little longer to wear out.
