Sewing

Having a hard time with your zipper? Centered zipper, fly front, lapped zipper, and invisible zipper: these four zipper techniques are a must for any clothes construction. Try out this centered zipper technique, and your zipper will never shift again when inserting it. See how to design fly front zippers with a deep placket to avoid the zipper or zipper pull from showing on the center front of your pants or jeans. Lapped zipper is where all the construction is to one side and is always great for most dresses, pants, and skirts. An invisible zipper is not as hard to sew as you might think; the secret is the pressing of the zipper before sewing. Time to sew and zip it up!!!
