-Sewing Tip-
‘How to sew on a button with double thread & without a knot - ideal for delicate fabrics!’
⠀⠀
The best tips are the ones passed on by fellow sewists & i have used I learnt this one from @sewbrooke who is an amazing seamstress & costumer🧵👗🧵, if you’re don’t already follow her, you should! I’ve used this tip so many times, thank you Brooke 😘. For this example I was adding a button to the back neckband of a #fibremoodholly dress on Liberty crepe. 
1️⃣Cut a long length of thread, bring the cut ends together to make a double thread. Pass the cut ends through the eye of the needle, keep the loop at the end where you would usually knot the thread.
.⠀⠀
2️⃣Take a tiny stitch in the place you wish to add a button but don’t pull the end loop through! Instead, place the needle through the loop & pull gently. Your double thread is now secure!
.⠀⠀
3️⃣ Sew on your button in the usual way. Secure your thread by passing the needle through the stitches & catching the loop to knot it off.
.⠀⠀
This technique is brilliant for delicate fabrics like lace, mesh, sequinned fabrics or anything where you don’t want the bulk of a knot. I use it for any other hand sewing that uses a double thread- adding hooks & eyes, press studs etc.
