How To Quickly Sew Buttons Back On

Shirts often come with a spare button or two, but that doesn't mean we knew how to sew it on if one goes missing. This video fills in the gaps.

Our sibling site FabSugar has a video walkthrough that details how to sew buttons (both two- and four-hole types) back onto a garment. The crucial stage is the back stitching, which ensures the button stays properly in place. I'll admit to having often ignored that stage in my own button sewing efforts, which doubtless goes a long way to explaining why they rarely stay on for long. Hit the link to check out the full technique.
