View Full Version : first: buttons or blocking?

I *just* finished my Buttony Sweater, and was curious as to what everyone prefers.... Do you attach the buttons first, or block first? Does it even really matter? :teehee:

I wouldn't think it'd matter a whole lot, but as a general rule of thumb, I will block first, then put the finishing touches on a garment.

I always block my pieces first. Then I add the buttons, zipper, or snaps.

I block, add buttons/band, and block again. It shouldn't matter too much, especially if you already have button holes in place.
