Bound Buttonholes: Retro AND Easy

I am working on a Red Shirtwaist Dress made from this pattern and fabric:

Literally the second thing I was to do after applying interfacing was to sew a bound buttonhole. I had never sewn one before and had never even really given them a thought, except that they looked complicated, and since the button would cover it anyway, Why Bother?

I am here to tell you that they are both EASY and FABULOUS.  Here is a picture of the front band of the dress with the buttonhole. I love the way it looks and am so happy I didn’t just do a machine buttonhole.

I have posted a tutorial with pictures based on the instructions in the pattern at my blog, Modern Twist!
