I've made several lined jumpers for my youngest granddaughter. In these patterns, there is no interfacing in the buttonhole area. To give the buttonhole more stability, I cut a small piece of light to medium weight tearaway stabilizer. I place this piece of stabilizer underneath the buttonhole area and sew the buttonhole as I normally would. The stabilizer tears off easily from the inside of the garment and the buttonhole is more stable.

I'm ready to do the buttonholes on a corduroy jumper for DGD. No interfacing, and I was wondering how those buttonholes would work out. Thanks for the tip, I'll be using it soon.

Oh, this is a wonderful hint! I shall try it soon as I make a number of these dresses and never thought of using tear-away stabilizer.
