Machine Button Holes
The topic came up in the CS sack coat thread about machine sewn button holes, so I thought I would start a new thread. As mentioned in the previous discussion there are several pair of trousers that have machine made button holes. Does any one have pictures of these trousers, and or their button holes? Does anyone have a picture of a machine made button hole from a garment that was in use during the war?
I own one of Mr. Sekelas frocks that contains the period machined holes and i am interested in learning about the different articles of clothing that are like it.
PS Please, do not let this turn into a war of machined vs. hand work. Let's discuss existing garments without getting into a war of reproductions.
