Tip: To make it easy to turn the loops (piece 8) inside out after stitching, cut the strip into two pieces.
Fold the strips lengthwise, right sides facing. Stitch ¼” (0.5 cm) from the fold line. Trim allowances. Put the thread ends through a needle and knot. Push the needle, the eye first, through the loop to turn right side out. Cut the strip into 13 equal pieces. Each loop should measure 2” (5.5 cm). (a)
Fold the loops and position them onto the markings along the right front edge and left back edge of the blouse. Baste in place. The size of the loops has to match the button size. (b)
