another invisible zipper in

After just barely succeeding in my last attempt at an invisible zipper, I've tried again and it's better than any I've done yet!

My last try was for a velveteen skirt, and I was so dreading it that I put in in by hand. But then I bought some lovely cotton velvet - it's heavier, almost upholstery fabric. I knew I had to use the machine for this one.

why is it so hard to photograph velvet?

It's in! With my old sewing machine and a regular zipper foot, according to some different instructions from an old issue of Threads, shared by a kind lady.

Blessed relief.  Until I have to do another one.

  1. You did a very nice job, Lisa. I find those particularly hard to put in and so I avoid them.
