Hello, I'm finishing up Vouge 8333
are self covered buttons considered in or out?

Carol, I didn't want you to feel ignored. Unfortunately, I don't know. Good question.

I think I would still use them on dresses and blouses, but on jackets, I'd probably opt for something else.

I agree with Karla because I feel on that pattern that they are a decorative touch and need to be visible. But in sewing you do what YOU want!

I feel like they're "in" in that most non-sewing people aren't familiar with them, or if they are, it's because they've seen them on more expensive garments. In this day, I feel like they read as "retro" or "expensive", since they seem to be found mostly on vintage or higher-priced RTW nowadays.

I personally don't really care about what people think about them. I like them and they present an easy solution for matching buttons to particular fabric.

What could be wrong with a beautiful covered button made by you. I think it seems like a pretty classy element for your garment, and adds one more personal touch well thought out by you.
