I tried some stitch combinations today.
2.The first row is a combination of this stitch with Italian border stitch and pistil stitch. The sailor edging stitch slips inside fly stitch to form loops in the second row.

It is easier to control the thread tension and twists with this stitch. So it better than basic buttonhole and knotted buttonhole. It looks more attractive too.
