Method of stitching placket open at both ends

Placket is an opening or a slit that allows room for the garment to put on. One edge of the slit is finished by facing and other by extension. Facing is also called “Single button stand. In Kannada it is called “Single Patti”. Extension is called double button stand and “double Patti “Plackets are closed by using hooks and eyes or bars, snap fasteners and buttons and button holes .Usually in ladies garments Facing is stitched to the right-hand side of the garment and extension is stitched to the left side of the garment. Facing overlaps the extension.
When snap fasteners are used the ball part of the snap is positioned on the overlap side of the placket, and the socket on the under lap.
When hooks & eyes or bars are used Hooks are stitched on the facing inside the garment and the bars or eyes are stitched on the extension.
When buttons are used buttons are stitched to the extension or under lap and the buttonholes are done on the facing.
