Can anyone advise me if silk dupioni is a fabric that bound buttonholes will work nicely for? I"m making a pattern that calls for bound buttonholes and I'm using silk dupioni although the pattern ( Vogue 1054 ) doesn't list silk dupioni as a recommended fabric. I've already cut the pattern out.

It looks like I posted this under the wrong section. I'll repost it under another message board. Sorry.

Yes, works nicely. I use silk organza for the windowpane backing.

I heart Woo (HimmyCat). Until we meet again, my beautiful little boy. I love you.

Yes, it presses crisply. I'd interface your lip fabric to keep it from raveling and interface the buttonhole area with lightweight fusible to keep it from raveling.
