All It Takes Is A Little Wrapping Around To Make A Shank Button Be More Stable On The Garment


Shank buttons are found on many types of garments.  The most common would be jackets, blazers, and coats.  These button need to be sewn on well because they have to work with heavier fabrics which make the button work harder.

To start, bring your needle and thread up from underneath the garment.  Then thread the needle through the shank of the button.  Bring the needle back into the fabric heading to the underside of the garment which will move the button next to the fabric. 

 Repeat this at least 4 times. 

 Now, bring the needle and thread up from underneath  but don't run it through the button shank.

 Instead, wrap the thread at least 3 times around the  thread and shank so that it sablizes the button.  Now  you can go ahead and run the needle and thread         back down into the fabric and achor the thread on  the underside.

 By wrapping the thread, you get more strength and  support on the button.  This will help to keep the  button from popping off too soon.
