The Milanese buttonhole dose not require knots, it just adds unnecessary extra work.
Doesn't help you are left handed. But i get it, like normal button hole except you wrap the gimp too. Quite clever.
where is the ruler from in the beginning?
great work their,. they ain't nothing like handcraft,.
Absolutely fantastic. I loved the opera in the background while fashioning the most beautiful buttonhole ever.
where can I buy the Milanese thread online?
hello, amazign video. may you advice me what is the quality of the threads and cordon you use and from which company?

What do you put inside the stiches?
Another common name for that "thread" cord is gimp. It gives definition to the buttonhole and strength.
+Mauricio Calderón It's a large cotton thread shutted in silk, it's this thread is called Milanese.
The Music is as Heavenly as the work ! thank you (cheers with Red Wine)
Thank you very much for this incredible inside on these fantastic looking buttonholes. I have one question though. Do you first stitch the form the reverse side with a regular button hole stitch (minus the gimp thread) and THEN you stitch the top using a regular button hole stitch again and then grabbing the gimp thread in every second stock - It this the correct interpretation?
It's really beautiful but how does 1:35link to 1:40 ? The line on top of buttonhole is good! How?
Thank you for sharing this wonderful tutorial, which I have tried for the first time today. I love the look of this style, but can you tell me, what size bite of stitch should I take for the buttonhole stitch, before I take the stitch into the gimp.............my first stitch is showing beyond the gimp......................I would love to get this perfect like yours. Again, thank you for sharing your expertise with us all. Kindest regards, Marysia.
I don't think can be explained. But perhaps what you could do is, pick a interval and stick with it. Good consistancy is more important. Leave extra large interval first, then go smaller will always look nice i think until you go to small interval and start bunching up. Think it depends on the silk twist size. thicker thread obvisouly need more spacing than thin thread.
Beautiful. I went to tailoring school for three years and they did not taught us this hole. Using butt of the needle for finishing the bridge seems like a useful thing too. It makes me want to start sewing again.
i have hear that it takes an hour to be made is that true?
No :) Just 20minutes to make this buttonhole !
