Sew on buttons.

  1. On the left panel, sew on four 1” buttons corresponding to the buttonholes located on the right panel
  2. On the right panel, working 6” from the left of each buttonhole, sew on 1” buttons (see photo for example).
  3. Going back to neckline, about 6” into top right lapel, sew on 0.75” button.
  4. Overlapping of panels: left panel is overlapped by about 6” of the right panel so inside buttoning is achievable.
