well onto thejacket bound buttonholes in progress exactlyas we did before and now folded in to opposite side ready to be stitched down and for this jacet I fancy rows of emroidery stitches or stab stitching around the button.

one nex job todo is to face bind the armole and this we will use a strip of dyed silk chiffon  4″ wide strip of dyed silk chiffon   double this and pin around edge  of armhole  on the right side of the jacket wi th non-folded  edges in th stitching line machine o r handstitch into place on right side.I normally make each armhole a differing  tone of colourrol the silk in your f ingers and p in close  to stitching line  on the  wrong side slipstith down
