I've noticed many BurdaStyle members are making their creations with old-school straight-stitch-only machines they've inherited or thrifted. You can make gorgeous buttonholes on these machines by using a clever attachment... and even if you have a newer zigzag machine, you may want to try the attachment if you don't like your built-in buttonholes.
