    Sewing Skirt – Do I sew the straight waist band before attaching the zipper or the other way round?

    Nice explanation for inserting an invisible zipper. Showing how to stitch down the bottom of the zipper, and producing a smooth seam below the zipper was very helpful! I’ve always had a problem with that! A minor suggestion – Sunni should remove the large, chunky ring on her left hand because it’s distracting and blocks seeing exactly what she’s doing. Interesting ring, but it gets in the way…..

    Thank you for the instructions
    What kind of sewing machine do you suggest to make zipper . I have a A home sewing machine that does not work on zipper and it makes lots of thread puckers . Do you think a computerized sewing machine is much more stronger and can’t handle multiple layers of fabric and sewing zipper? Thank you very much for advice

    I can watch this class on my computer or my tablet, but cannot watch on my TV (Amazon Fire). Is this feature unavailable? I also cannot access my Sewing on the Edge class on my TV.

    Why is the documentation no longer available to download? I own this class and should have access to that.
