I have made several shirts/blouses from the pattern magazine, four of them with concealed button bands. In two cases the actual button bands were cut separately and stitched on. In two cases the facing is just supposed to be folded back and buttonholes added. The thing is that they are really badly drafted. To make a cut-on concealed button and, you need three fold lines. Burda only gives you two. Why are these always so badly drafted? Anyone else have this experience?

    Which patterns do you mean? I have a pattern from 2010 that has the buttonholes stitched on the facing and then the facing turned back and stitched so the buttonholes are only on the facing and you can’t see them from the outside. It seems like a poor quality finish when a concealed button placket would be much more secure, like the “plain fly closing” on this page
