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.

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.
