Experienced sewing people - can I get bigger buttons put on old shirts?
February 8, 2024 8:51 AM Subscribe
I have a bunch of very nice button-down work shirts that have small buttons and tight-fitting button holes. I also now have arthritis in my hands that’s making it painful if not impossible to button these buttons. Can I take them to a tailor/seamstress and get larger buttons put on along with corresponding larger button holes, or is that foolishness? Foolishness factors include prohibitive cost, impossibility of the task, or general ’no way to do this and make it look good.’
