    I’m sewing 4 Library Dresses, in 21 wale Kaufman corduroy, for my granddaughters for Christmas. The sizes are 12/18 mo, 6, 7 and 12. The pattern calls for 1/2″ buttons. I ordered the buttons and they measure 1/2″ but they look small. I’m concerned if they will hold the entire back of the dresses closed?

    For corduroy, since it’s so thick and heavy you might want to use larger buttons. You’ll have to use your judgement. You can probably make 1/2″ buttons work–you’ll just have to be sure the buttonholes are small enough to support the buttons and be sure to leave enough of a shank when you sew the buttons that they don’t pull themselves through the buttonhole.

    Thank you I used the buttons and they seem fine.
