I interfaced the centre front pieces with horsehair cut on the straight grain, with the side fronts interfaced with bias interfacing. Here’s a pic of the bound buttonholes. I’m pretty darn proud of them, I must say. I measure and re-measured and measured again, and they are as close to perfect as I could hope for. *grin*The facing is underlined with silk organza, and I used silk organza patches to face the buttonhole facings. And here’s the front facing, fell-stitched in place.

Your coat is shaping up to be a work of art! Your bound buttonholes are lovely inside and out, and all your careful interfacing is gorgeous.
Thanks! I love me gorgeous interfacing! 😉
wow… just wow…. that’s a lot of perfect buttonholes!!! lovely job – congrats!! 🙂
Woa! I’m speechless. The buttonholes are beautiful, and the fabric is the perfect choice as it shows very well all the seams and construction elements. It is great to see all the layers that contribute to the coat’s shape and support. Will all the pattern pieces be interfaced or underlined?
oooh! Your button holes are divine!
Thanks! I’m pretty chuffed with them this time around!
Your coat is coming together wonderfully. It will be beautiful for years with such careful planning and construction.
Having an “investment” piece is my goal!
Look at those bound button holes, they look just fantastic. That is a great idea to interline the facing with silk organza.
Silk organza is the most wonderful fabric. Ever.
Very well done!
Thanks! I’m pretty proud of myself this time ’round!
Those buttonholes are so beautiful. Well done.
Your bound buttonholes look wonderful. It will be a beautiful coat you can wear for many years!
I’m hoping it will last for a looooong time.
