What is a Bound Buttonhole?
A bound buttonhole is a decorative and functional buttonhole that is reinforced and finished with fabric or trim. It is often used in tailored garments, such as jackets, coats, or formal wear, to provide a refined and polished look. Bound buttonholes are created by cutting a slit in the fabric and then enclosing the raw edges with strips of fabric or bias tape, which are stitched in place. This technique results in a neat and durable buttonhole that resists fraying and adds a decorative element to the garment. Bound buttonholes can be customized in terms of size, shape, and the choice of fabric or trim, allowing for creative and personalized design details.
