It's just a function I set, but it automatically goes on the edges in order as long as I switch it in the correct order. Not bad for a cheap ass household Singer.

Edge 1: Right side of buttonhole facing you, forward over the dogs.
Edge 2: Bottom of the buttonhole. Right to left on the dogs.
Edge 3: Left side, BACKWARDS on the dogs.
Edge 4: Top, left to right.  DONE!

My buttholes always end up weird.  :|  I sucketh at those.  The thing I hate about the damned zipper foot is it gets in the way of me being able to see!  It's probably just my suckass machine.

Which I need to have serviced.  I got it for my 17th birthday, and let's see, that makes it 18 1/2 years old, and I've never once serviced it.  Bad Jenne is bad.

If the zipper foot is getting in the way of what you need to see, you're looking on the wrong side. LOL.  They should be smaller in comparison to an all-purpose foot, it's possible on your older machine that the one you have is either archaic, or just wrong.

Archaic...it's older than some posters on this board, I think.  *blush*  But it's because it obscures the stitches. OR maybe I'm switching it to the wrong side.  It can go both ways, the way the feet switch out.

I dunno.  Been a while.  But I know I struggle to keep the zipper WITHIN the damned seam because of the fucking foot.

18 and 1/2 makes it almost exactly as old as me.

Here's the chest suspenders.
Kinda dark, but you get the idea.



I look real amused too.
