The 117 prefix indicates that it was made by White Sewing Machine Co for Sears. Surely it doesn't have a built in buttonhole. White hasn't made machines for Sears for decades. I didn't think they made anything except straight stitch machines while they were manufacturing for Sears.

You might check out sewusa.com for a reprint of the manual. I didn't see one for the 117.720, but there may be something close enough for it to be really helpful.

I know I found my manual online just google searching the model number, not sure if that will work for you though.
