This foot is used for sewing buttonholes on tight areas such as cuffs and other areas where more freedom of movement is required than available with a Sliding Buttonhole Foot.

Particularly good for finishing off medium to heavyweight, easily frayed woven fabrics such as tweed, gabardine, and linen.
