    At the end of this pattern it says to go to the blog to find directions for sewing on the button with a thread shank. I’m sure I can google for another set of directions but if Liesl has a specific way of doing it, I’d love to read it. Does anyone know where this info is on the oliverands website? I couldn’t find it in either the tutorials or on the blog but my search ability isn’t the best.

    Thanks!

    Here you go. It’s labelled “thread chain”. It’s way easier to do than it looks!

    I’m sorry for the delay on that post. I filmed a great tutorial with CreativeBug last year, and we’re hoping to post it to the site. It’s taken longer to manage the logistics than we had expected. But if you’d like to view it (it’s free!) on CreativeBug, here is a link:

    http://www.creativebug.com/workshops/sewing-buttonholes-and-buttons

    You’ll need to sign up to view it (I think?), but the workshop itself is free. The button instructions themselves start at about 5:20. And the thread chain is the link that Robin pointed to, above. I hope that helps!

    I gotta learn how to read. Sorry about that.

    Awesome, thanks to both of you! I absolutely LOVED this pattern. I’ve never made a lined dress before and it was kind of mind-blowing to see how it was done. Even though the pattern is only 2 scissors (and I agree it was very simple to make) I still learned so much!

    It is a fantastic pattern. This method of lining a sleeveless dress works for many other patterns too. I first learned it from Threads magazine and now use it all the time.
