Tutorial/Video: How to sew a thread button loop
Our Ruby Top pattern has a delicate button/loop closure at the back of the neck, that requires a thread button loop. We have had a few enquiries asking how to do this. So here’s the method I use when making my thread button loops which I find a whole lot easier than making teeny tiny fabric rouleau loops! This method can be used when making delicate belt carriers for dresses too.
For those who prefer a quick visual, check out the video tutorial below (Note: in the video I’ve used contrast purple thread to help make it more visible):
