I am so happy with the way the zipper installed that I just have to show you! I cut some strips of fusible knit interfacing, one inch wide even though I am using a 5/8" seam allowance. The zipper sewed in so nicely with no hint of a ripple.
If you didn't see the zipper pull as a clue, could you find the zipper?
Now the next challenge is stabilizing the waistband and finishing up another garment for the style show.
