Open the zipper and pin face down, just under the top welt. I fold the extension at the top of the zipper under . 2. I stitch the zipper down sewing in the middle of the tape, the length of the welt staying,in the pocket opening.

3. I just nudge the button over and keep sewing. 4. I start pinning the other side by lining up the folded zipper end, pinning to fit the pocket with the zipper. With a needle and thread I take several stitches to create a new zipper stop and hold the ends together.
