This is a variation on covered press studs. Making an edge to edge jcket, and wanting it to fasten across the opening with a stiched bow, its possible to hide a press stud inside the bow piece from the back, concealing the other section inside the tab it is to fasten to.
The bow here is made from a doubled strip of fabric, the loops folded up, and another piece wrapped round it for the centre of the bow. Before stitching this centre strip down at the back, stitch the press stud to the back of the bow. Then bring the centre strip round to the back and mark with a pin where the raised ball of the press stud comes. Pierce the fabric, making a small round hole, and fraycheck round it, slip it over the press stud and finish off by hemming it down. The only part of the stud visible is the small raised centre ball - the photo shows the back of the bow. In the jacket I'm making the bow crosses over on to a small folded fabric strip the same width as the bow, and the other (female) section of the press stud is stitched inside this, completely concealed. Closing the press stud pushed the fabric down into the hollow of the press stud, and when it was opened again, fray checking a small circle round it prevents the fabric wearing away and getting untidy.
If the jacket is worn open there is no metal part showing apart from the small raised stud, and all the untidy stitching which holds a press stud down is hidden inside on both pieces, so it looks ok.
