I've given up on the automatic button-hole feature, because it sometimes works and sometimes utterly ruins my button-holes.
I have a dress to finish this week and can not take a chance on the automatic feature.
So I am going to zigzag the button hole - but I see that to bar-tack the ends some videos recommend "dropping the feed dogs." My machine doesn't have that option - I can't drop the feed dogs.
How can I make a bar tack without dropping the feed dogs?
This dress has about 20 or more buttons - hand sewing them will be my last option - I'm hoping I can at least manually sew them with the zigzag stitch with my machine.
The bar tack is my only sticking point. Help?
