Placement of Buttons on Tab Placket

In last week’s post, I forgot to mention where to sew buttons.

When using horizontal and vertical buttonholes, the buttons are stitched on the centre front.  However, with vertical buttonholes, the button should be at the top of the buttonhole.  If it is sewn in the centre of the buttonhole, the button side of the garment will drop during wear, allowing the button to rest against the top of the buttonhole, resulting in an uneven hemline.
