a. Eyes: The eyes are curved or straight and are made of metal. These are usually substituted with thread loops of matching color thread. Usually finished in the same way as hooks. Fasten the thread on the wrong side when finished. Mostly overcasting, blanket or button hole stitch is used for stitching eyes.
Cut a strip of bias fabric about 1 wide fold in half lengthwise, right sides together, and stitch about 1/8 from the folded edge down the length of the strip. Trim seam allowances to 1/8. Attach a strong thread to one end of tube at the seam. Turn the tube inside out by drawing the thread right through the tubing with a heavy needle. Cut the tube into lengths equal to the finished length of the loop plus seam allowance. Place these pieces on the right side of the over lap, shaped as loops turned away from the edge of the opening. Tack the facing right side down over loop and machine along seam line. Turn facing to wrong side and tack in position. Loops will be now extending from placket edge. Button, matching to the fabric loops are fixed on the under lap.
