How to Sew a Button on a Coat or Jacket
If you need to sew a button on coat or jacket read this tutorial. It contains the 15 photos with professionally comments.
This tutorial will help you to sew a big button on the leather jacket, on the winter coat, on the fur coat etc.
Note: In addition to the big button you will also need a small flat button with two or four holes.
The big button can have holes or shank, like this button.
Mark the point where the button will be sewn.
To sew large buttons you need to use a medium sized hand needle.
Pull out from the spool about one meter of thread and fold it in half.
Now this double-stranded thread must be inserted into the needle. Tie the all four ends with a knot. In the result you will have a thread folded in four.
The first needle puncture should be done from the front side of the clothing. In this case, the knot of the thread will be hidden under the button
On the reverse side of coat, you must place a flat little button and pass the thread through the holes, as shown.
If you do not use a small button, the large button can quickly tear off (along with the fabric of a coat or leather material).
Now it's time to sew a big button on a coat or jacket.
The distance between the button and the material of coat must be at least 1 cm.
Make 3 or four stitches, no more, because the your thread is folded into four.
The button must have a leg (shank).
To make it you need to wrap the stitches with the same thread, as shown.
When finished wrapping, insert the needle into the bottom of the leg and tighten the thread well. You can repeat this step.
At last step pass the thread to the wrong side of the coat or jacket and trim the thread with scissors.
In the finished form, you can put a pencil under the button. Such a long leg will make it easy to button up clothing.
This method you can use to sew a big button on the leather jacket, on the winter coat, on the fur coat etc.
