Sibu Tales : Buttons on the Right Cotton Blouses

I was learning some dress making from Miss Ida our Home Science teacher. We had all to make a blouse each. And we had to remember how to sew the buttons correctly. On the left.

Can you remember how to differentiate a boy's shirt from a girl's??

Buttons on the left for girls, right over left and button up.

Men wear their shirts, left over right as the buttons have to be on the right.

Many of us still cannot remember the way buttons must be sewn and sometimes new tailors or dressmakers still make mistakes.

But today I may just wear an overshirt, with buttons on the right...
