If you plan to make buttonholes on sheer or soft material place

tarlatan or paper, which can be turn away after stitching, under the
fabric. And it is always wise to make several buttonholes on scraps
of fabric before working on the garment.

For narrower buttonholes, set the stitch width at 1% and move

stitch width lever to 3 for bar tack.


1. Remove hinged presser foot and attach button sewing foot. ' See

Fig. 30-A, B and C).

2. Turn drop feed knob to "DOWN".

Move zigzag width lever to "0" position or to the extrerne le .

Place the button so that its left hole comes directly under the

needle, then gently lower the presser foot. Move the zigzag
width lever to the right until the needle comes exactly over the

right hole of the button. Turn the balance wheel slowly by hand
to be sure the needle clears both holes of the button. Correct
width if necessary.


When needle goes into the center of each hole, run the machine

at medium speed, making five or six stitches, stopping with the
needle in the left hole.


To lock the zigzag stitch and prevent ravelling,

set the stitch width at 0, and take a few stitches

in the same hole. If you wish you may place
a rounded toothpick over the button, between

the two holes, and sew button to fabric in
regular way.
