I'm making a skirt that buttons all the way down the front for a friend of mine who has movement difficulties. My question is - should the buttons be parallel to the edge or at righy angles, or horizontal or vertical to the floor, to put it another way. I'd like to deliver the skirt to her tomorrow at church if pos. I've made skirts like this before but had a 'senior moment'.

Thankyou helpers.

I think they should be at a right angle, perpendicular to the edge, and parallel to the floor.

In the skirts that I have, the buttonholes are vertical (parallel to the center front) but the real question is which way would be easier for her to button & unbutton.

If there is going to be a lot of pulling or stress on the skirt, I'd put them horizontal.  If no stress, then vertical, which would probably look nicer.

Usually you put buttonholes perpendicular to the edge, unless there is a narrow band like a shirt front placket.  Then you make the buttonholes vertical.  And you sew the button towards the top of the vertical buttonhole, not at the center.

Thanks everyone. I made the buttonholes vertical in the end. I thought it looked nicer, and as the skirt had an elasticated waist, the wearer might not even have to undo the buttons.

Glad it turned out well. Button-through skirts I've made in the past have had a horizontal buttonhole at the waist, with the rest vertically placed.
