What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure to baste the zipper first or use a glue stick to tack it down temporarily. Use a piece of scotch tape as a guide when sewing in the zipper (center it over the zipper and then stitch around it) so that you get a nice, straight seam. The materials I used were different than what were suggested on the pattern because of the use of the costume so I would advise you to use what Simplicity suggests to make it easier to sew.
