I don't like back zippers in children's clothing and I'd like to hear suggestions as to the best way to change to a buttoned opening. I have my own way, but it just doesn't please me. I'm a fairly advanced sewer but some things just escape me ... plus I've not sewn for little ones for 40 years. Now that I gave a DGD to sew for, I'm back into it as my DD loves having OOAK fashions for her DD.

What age? I think exchanging for a placket with one top button might work. Or do you need the entire length to button?
