This buttonhole foot has been designed for vintage Singer sewing machines that have a slanted bar to attach onto. If you aren’t sure if this will fit your sewing machine, then please click on the “Compatibility” tab to see all the sewing machine models that we are aware of with this fitting. For more help with checking your sewing machine fitting, you might want to take a look at our sewing machine foot guide.

This buttonhole foot is a sliding buttonhole foot with an adjustable screw that allows you to set the desired buttonhole length. This makes it much easier for you to create precise and consistent buttonholes at the size you need.

To attach the buttonhole foot to your vintage Singer sewing machine, remove the current screw-on presser foot or the adapter that snap-on feet attach to and screw the buttonhole foot into place. To use this foot, you’ll need to adjust your machine’s settings. Select your buttonhole stitch setting, which usually looks like a square or a bar tack stitch. Check your sewing machine manual if required, as most older sewing machines wont have a 1 stitch buttonhole so you will likely have to switch between stitches to sew the top and bottom of the buttonhole, the left side and the right side. You may also need to adjust the stitch length. Smaller stitch lengths will give a more formal appearance but may be too stiff or bulky for some fabrics so you may want to have a practice to see which stitch setting works best on some scraps first.

When it comes to measuring the correct buttonhole size for your button, there’s a few different methods you can use. One easy way is to place a piece of paper over the button. Use a pencil to make a small mark on either side of the button. Measure the distance between the two marks and add about 1/8 inch (3mm) to that measurement. This should give you the ideal buttonhole length for your button.

To get the best results when using the buttonhole foot, you may also need to consider if your fabric needs stabiliser to prevent it from stretching or distorting, not only while being sewn, but also during repeated use. This can be especially important when working with lighter-weight fabrics or knits. You may also want to mark your buttonhole placement before sewing, using a fabric marker or chalk, especially if you are aiming for even spacing of your buttons. I prefer to mark all my buttonholes and sew these first before then marking through the centre of each buttonhole for the perfect placement of where each button should be sewn afterwards.

While the buttonhole foot is obviously known for creating buttonholes, it can also be used to help you create eyelets for lacing or embellishments or for making small, uniform openings for belts or drawstrings.

So if you’re looking to sew blouses, shirts, skirts and more, or cushions and accessories with beautiful, functional buttonholes, then we hope that this buttonhole foot will help you slide right into a professional finish!
