Zippers Unzipped- How to Sew a Zipper

Lay the zipper face down over the seam, lining the teeth up with the seamline. Use a few pieces of scotch tape (no more than 1 every 4 inches or so) to hold the zipper in place. Remove your tape. Use your seam ripper to remove the basting stitches. Stitch the top part of the zipper to the fabric. You’re done! Back side: Related. #Sureau Sew-Along# Poser la fermeture éclair.

Note: this pattern comes from the lapped zipper tutorial. You will not need all of those same pattern pieces. The pieces you need are the right back bodice and the left neck facing. Cut two of each of those. You’ll also need a 7″ plastic coil zipper. Right sides together, stitch to the marked dot and stop, back stitching. Matching the layers (fabric and zipper tape) evenly, sew the right side of the zipper in place. Repeat for the left side, again, matching all layers evenly. I want you to notice something here.

Now sew the left facing into place, matching seam edges evenly. Repeat for the right facing. Fold your pieces as shown here. Now sew that into place with 1/4″ seam allowance.
