To secure the welts permanently, stitch with tiny stabstitches around the seamlines. The front of your buttonhole is now finished. You can finish the back once the lining or facing of your garment is in place.
When the lining of your garment is in place, the backs of the buttonholes are not visible anymore, covered by the lining. To mark where they are, stick a pin at both ends of your buttonhole through all layers of fabric. When you turn your work, the pins will stick out and mark where your buttonholes are.
