I'm a real novice in sewing. Caught the sewing bug a few weeks ago and made some curtains, PJs for DD, and currently working on a 4th of July outfit for her. I've never done buttonholes or zippers and would like to find out how to go about doing them. I have a buttonhole "stitch" on my machine, but haven't tried using it yet. I also have a zipper foot and I've used it to sew on snap tape for dd's pjs. Any advice is appreciated. I'm eyeing a Hawaiian shirt pattern for dh, but it has buttons in it and I'm not quite brave enough to try it.
