I was wanting to make Vogue 2960 out of a linen fabric. (A $20 fabric for $4 a yard- so great). So out comes the sewing reference manual to learn how to make bound buttonholes. I looked through my sewing reference book, the method I understood the easiest was the organza patch method. What type of organza would you recommend me looking for?

Organza is used as a stabilizer to keep the bound buttonholes in shape. You can also use muslin, if it's thin; featherweight interfacing, or even nylon. And you know you don't need a lot.

I haven't made bound buttonholes but I'd look for silk organza. Every time I sew with natural fibers, I seem to get a superior result.

You definitely want silk organza, as opposed to polyester, as silk has the stiffer hand and stability.
