It is in really good condition, and I knew it would work with my singer buttonhole attachment:
I just love how it all fits into the space age container. This attachment cost about $25 and made perfect buttonholes on the shirt.
OK, so maybe it is a little hard to see white buttonholes on white stripey fabric with white buttons, but I am trying!
All-in-all I am thilled with these buttonholes - the time it took to set up this machine and buttonholer took only a few minutes - and will use this set up in future. I know that I am lucky to have more than one machine, but it makes you realize why professional dressmakers (and non-professionals as well) have dedicated machines for different processes. It is also interesting that a machine that it over 60yrs old and a buttonholer of about the same age still make perfect buttonholes. I love my Pfaff in so many ways, but buttonholes are not its speciality!
What about you? Do you have any equipment/notions that you find are far superior to their modern day counterparts?
