Buttoning is surprisingly troublesome, but once mastered, it can be sewn back on securely even if it comes off.

Repairing buttons, for example, is a chance to show men your girl power!

I will explain it as clearly as possible with pictures. It is easy to understand, so please try your best to learn it.

The thread is two-ply. A special thread called buttoning thread is available, but sewing machine thread will also work.

Here's the point out of the blue! You do not need a round knot at the end of the thread to attach the button. As you can see in the picture above, the knot is not made. It is the official way.

The reason why we don't tie a round knot is because if we tie a round knot, that part will be rumpled after completion, so we usually don't. Surprisingly, many people do not know this.

First, blind stitch the buttoning position (notch mark) of the collar stand about 1mm from the front side.

Be sure to blind stitch not only the front side but also the back side of the piece together. The basting thread of the notch mark should be removed here.

Since the thread end is not tied in a round knot, pull the thread so that it does not fall out.

Leave the thread as shown in the picture. This is called "discarded thread".

You can leave it longer and cut it shorter later.

From the state where the discarded thread is ready, thread the needle twice in the same position and it will not unravel even if there is no knot.

This time, we will use the standard four-hole button, which is often used for shirts and the like.

When sewing a button, the needle is threaded through the hole from the bottom of the button, and the next time, the needle is threaded through the opposite hole from the top.

Once the holes button is threaded, sew it to the collar stand.

Leave about 4mm of thread foot, which is the "foot" of the button, as shown in the photo.

In this way, a gap (thread foot) is created between the button and the fabric.

It's a little tedious, but this thread foot makes it easier for the button to pass through the buttonhole.

Sew again in the same manner.

After two sew are sewn down, the next step is the remaining holes button.

Be sure to thread the needles in the order from bottom to top.

If you leave the thread foot, the button will be loose and unstable, making it difficult to sew down, but if you keep the thread foot taut while pulling on the button, it will be easier to sew down.

Thread twice as before, but do not sew the second thread to the collar stand as shown in the photo.

Wrap the thread around the thread foot from the bottom of the button to the collar stand.

Wrap it tightly so that it is not too loose.

And here's the point! When you wrap this button foot around, the "discarded thread" that was left at the very beginning is rolled in together and hidden.

Once the thread is wrapped around the thread foot, hook the thread around the index finger of the left hand and wrap the thread as shown in the photo.

When the thread is circled, a loop is formed, and the thread is threaded through it.

Pull the string slowly to avoid tangling.

Pass the needle from the base of the front side to the back side

Blind stitch on the reverse side, and backstitch 2~3 times.

Cut the thread.

The back side with the button. Scoop the same place for a clean finish.

The buttons are floating when viewed from the side.

"Thread foot" is a tedious process, but unlike ready-made buttons, buttons that you have carefully sewed on yourself are surprisingly sturdy and will not come off in the slightest!
