Creative Closures: 8 Unique Techniques

with Marsha McClintock
Fasten your garments and accessories with fashionable and functional flair! Personalize any pattern with one-of-a-kind closures that set your projects apart.

Boost your skills for sewing closures in an inspired array of styles. With pattern designer Marsha McClintock as your guide, you'll make your garments stand out with clever cut-on closures or capture a chic, understated look with in-seam buttonholes. Add a new focal point to your garments with corded closures and sew reversible button bands for twice the fun. Then, create triangle or origami buttonholes that are an eye-catching style statement. Plus, achieve a fun, trendy look with easy fold-over elastic closures, and bring your garments and accessories together beautifully with tab closures. From classic to contemporary, simple to artful, infuse unique design interest into garments and accessories with creative, customized closures.
