The button band, which may also be labeled on your pattern as a front band, is the strip of fabric going down the front of a buttoned down shirt. This strip plays an important part because it's the area that has your buttonholes and buttons. You'll notice that this area is typically stiffer than other parts of the shirt because it's usually stabilized by interfacing. The demonstration covers two parts of the assembly. The first part is attaching the button band towards the beginning of the shirt assembly. Then, it also goes over what needs to be done to the button band towards the end of the shirt assembly when you're ready to add buttonholes and buttons. This tutorial peels away the mystery of assembly and make it easy for even a beginner to conquer.
