There are some things in life just worth knowing: how to pump gas (unless you live in New Jersey?), how to fry an egg and how to expertly sew a button. I thought I knew how to sew buttons, but after watching this video, I realized my skills have been a little more — what’s the word — improvisational. This video breaks down the best way to sew a button in a super clear, straightforward way. Now I’m daring my fall coats to lose buttons so I can test out my skills.
