I am making the pretty Abbey jacket for Bess on my new beautiful Singer.

But try as I might I have never been able to sew a proper and nice buttonhole with it.

First attempt looks ok but is in the wrong place. You can kind of see where I wanted it to begin with the single sewn line at the bottom.

Second attempt is in the right place but is all messed up. 🙁
Please help! What am I doing wrong??

    Måske du kan finde hjælp i en gammel håndarbejdsbog? Maskiner mere moderne end din (!) har jo deciderede knaphulsprogrammer der mere eller mindre selv laver dem 😉

      Snydt Helene, det er en super ny singer der bare ligner en gammeldags en. Den har knappehulsprogram. Jeg err bare for dum til at få det til at fungere. Det er nok en fejl 40 som min far ville sige 😉
