Buttonholes are fairly common in garment sewing but you're most likely to see it in projects made from woven fabric. This doesn't mean that you won't sometimes want a buttonhole on something made with knit fabric. Like with zippers, sometimes it makes sense. Even if you're a master at doing buttonholes, doing them on stretchy fabric can be a little intimidating. There's no way to hide a bad looking buttonhole and they're usually done towards the end of the project, so you don't want to do everything well and then mess up at the end. Luckily, if you have the right tools and know-how you can do them no problem and they should come out very nice. This tutorial focuses on buttonholes on stretchy fabric only, showing two different techniques you can use. If you've never done a buttonhole before, I recommend checking out our other videos which goes over more details on how to create them and using specific types of presser feet.
