I am familiar with the standard way of making a hidden button placket by folding the end of the left side and top stitching it, or making the 'double doors' that the buttons hide behind.
Is it possible to construct the button closure of a shirt without the buttons showing, and without any top stitching showing too?
I considered making a facing with the buttonholes in it, but I think that would pull the facing into view. Alternatively, I could construct a double front, with the buttonholes in the 'lining' part of the front. That would potentially make the front drape strangely and add bulk.
Any insights into tackling this?
Thanks in advance,
