A Perfect Zipper

February 5, 2013

I am working on the SWAP, but I am somewhat behind on my work plan. I have completed my December goal but I have not yet started making the pants or coat.
In the process, though, I had a chance to practice zippers a bit. Invisible zippers have always been a struggle for me. I have an invisible zipper foot but I’ve had difficulty stitching close enough to the zipper teeth to actually make the zipper invisible. You may have noticed that the zipper tape is often visible which is the exact opposite of how it is supposed to be.

I’m rather proud that I got it right for this version of Burda 8155: my favourite skirt pattern.


See, no zipper tape.
