Zippers, the mear word cause many to run in fright. I have seen many custom boutique on FB won't make anything with a zipper in it. I have struggled for years to get one in and make it look good. After many years of testing, I have come up with a way to put in a center zipper so it looks like a professional tailor sewed it. I promise you can put one in and it will look great. I take you one step at a time with many, many images to help you be able to do it.
This pattern is in a PDF format and instant download over 8 pages that you can print or upload to your iPad and take to the sewing machine to have close at hand and you do each step.
I have over 40 years of experience. I am a certified sewing educator through the Home Sewer Association and I teach part-time at Central Piedmont Community College, Hobby Lobby, and Ruth Sewing Academy.
