What materials did you use? 22" invisible zipper set into a pieced dress made of a loosely woven acrylic blend underlined with crepe.

What are you most proud of? The first time I set the second half of the zipper I wasn't paying attention and, while the zipper was set nicely, I found I had turned my dress into a torus! I'm proud that this didn't frustrate me to the point of carelessness, and I was able to fairly quickly rip out the bad half and reset it with good results.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Invest in an invisible zipper foot. It really makes life easier.

hahaha, a torus :)) I once put in a jacket sleeve wrong side out, took it apart, and made the same mistake a SECOND time, finally got it right the third time... Our mistakes can make good stories :)
