I was putting buttonholes on a vest which the lining layer had a sticky finish. I was afraid the feed dogs might jam the buttonhole a bit if the fabric stuck, so I put a layer of tear-away stabilizer underneath. The buttonholes turned out perfect! I think some water-soluble might work better because there were a few "pokies" after I tore away the stabilizer.
