Bound Buttonholes: 5 Ways

Hello We Sew-Retro!

I am making some bound buttonholes for a project I am working on right now, so I was looking through my vintage sewing books and noticed there are many methods for making them. I was surprised because I have always seen the same method in modern patterns and tutorials. I decided to demonstrate a few methods and put together a tutorial as well as my thoughts on each. You can find it here.
