Can someone help with my problem please??
I have tested the buttonhole gadget on my machine. Same thickness of material with interfacing as per the waistcoat I am making.
Buttonhole works on test material but will not open on actual garment, or when pushed sewed a small patch then reverted to sticking. I spent at least one hour yesterday unpicking (carefully) the knotted blobs.
Really disappointed as this could ruin my waist coat totally, I am making the front in a medium weight suiting.
Is it a tension problem or a common problem. On another point I noticed on this site that you can make a buttonhole with using the one step gadget has anyone tried this??
If I cut only one on the fold of the fabric, then I will end up with one piece.

Hey! Thanks for your advice. I just tried gathering and the gathers are too bulky even …
My project, again, didn’t show up when I tried to post it today :(
Holy crap. In trying to type it up, I had an epiphany and I think I understand it now!!!
