I find it almost as good as the other International coffee's... just
not as costly.

I can relate! I hate button holes and even more so, hate doing them
(probably cuz I do them so badly). Most likely anything I need to
put buttons on, I usually make corded loops (lucet cord) which is
sewn on the article and can hook over attached buttons, or I pin the
buttons on if for decoration and not for actual closure). I suppose
if I knew how to do better button holes, I wouldnt hate them so
much, but then again, I am not a big fan of putting holes in my
fabric unless I have no choice! Can you tell I dont own alot of
corsets or other garb that requires holes for lacing! LOL
>Another type of closure that I developed to avoid making
buttonholes (Oh, Mother of Invention!), allows you to place your
buttons (either shank or pierced) or even a nice pair of bulky beads
on either side of your closure. Then use a piece of leather that has
a slit the length of the distance between the two buttons to hold
the garment closed. This works better for bulky materials (fake fur,
heavy wool cloaks, etc) and in groups of 2 or 3 strips. Otherwise
there is too much give on the closure and it will pivot around the
button with the most stress on it instead of distributing the
stress. (Hey, you didn't know that seamstresses were materials
physicists, did you?)
> Sometimes it helps if the slit ends are enlarged a little to
better accommodate the buttons. One of the advantages of this
closure is that you make a tighter closure simply by adjusting where
the buttons are attached to the garment rather than depending on the
placement of the buttonholes. (How many times were your buttonholes
placed just a little off kilter?)
> Best always....
> lady Fei
oooh! I like this idea....mind if I copy it?
****Oh and earlier in the discussion, I had described how I used
long-shank buttons (ones with holes big enough to accommodate my
lacings as well as the thread to sew them on the fabric) as
moveable "buttonholes" much as you plan to use the O or D rings.
This works really well for providing a decorative touch to a side or
fron lacing. On the back of a garment, it may prove uncomfortable
unless the button is relatively flat. As is the above application,
the buttons are much easier to move than a fabric piercing
buttonhole or even corded loops as Anneka suggests. Although the
loops are probably more period than the chank buttons unless it is

On another note, I was wondering - would anyone be willing to share
the other list/groups/forums they're mebers of and find are really
useful and they enjoy? The more I follow links and dig through
archives the more info I keep finding, and I was wondering where
everyone else's favorite places were?
