Have you made a Crescent blouse yet? If you have, you know that those little button loops can sometimes be a pain in the bum to make. Or is that just me? Personally, I hate having to sew teeny tiny components like that. But luckily, there is a simple hand-sewn technique that you can use instead. Compared to sewn button loops, thread bar button loops are delicate and discrete. And they work perfect for the lightweight fabrics you may be using for your Crescent blouse! The same technique is used to make this long belt loops on dresses, as well as short straight “eyes” you might see for hook and eyes. But today I’ll show you how to do it in loop form for those button holes.
As with any hand work, it takes patience. But I swear it is actually really simple!
