Hi, this is Andrew on behalf of Expert Village.com and today I am going to be showing you how to sew on a button clasp onto a dress shirt with a cuff.

A lot of people are unable to use their fingers in such a dextress manner to where they can feed the button through with one hand. This is a much easier alternative to that because it is easy to snap and then you just have to apply some pressure to it and it becomes undone. Now in this next clip I am going to be talking about choosing the length of thread based off of the material you are sewing on to. Now typically in this case I would use the blue thread to hide the stitch because it is not really something you want to show off. I am going to use white in this case just to show the stitching pattern on camera.

Now this is a cotton shirt and it is fairly sturdy but you don't need very much thread with it. These button clasps do take a lot of force though so you want to be a little bit generous with the amount. Normally with cotton you would not use very much thread. So because of the fact that they are going to have more pressure over time applied to them because as you pull on them rather than feeding them through a slot, I am probably going to use just a little under twice as much; maybe half as much more. So you would then take out the normal amount of thread that you would use which is typically about 3 feet for a button and I'll just do a little more than that. I am going to cut the thread and feed it through to where I wind up with what looks like this.
