I have yet to put in a zipper! Can't wait!!

Zippers always seem scarier than they really are. Using Wonder Tape makes zippers super easy. Let me know how you like it. Pins and basting will be a distant memory. Thanks for your comment!

Is it the angle of the picture??? The top seam looks closer to the zipper teeth than the bottom seam......

It does look closer to me too. When I do a technique on-camera, I try very hard to make it perfect, but it's probably slightly closer. If it were on an actual project, believe me, both edges would be equal. Glad you're paying such close attention ;-)

Is that a vintage zipper?

Perfect stitching around the zipper pull!!! That can be testy and your seams are perfectly straight! Good job, Gail! Thanks for all the inspiration! I am frustrated as the 80's Kenmore machine I inherited from my aunt does not have all the parts to make a REAL buttonhole ...yet! So I made five faux bound buttonholes on a green batik tunic I made. But I am detirmined to find all the parts to make all the REAL buttonholes I want to!!! Many thanks for sharing all your wonderful knolwedge! Janet

That zipper can be purchased at Joann Fabrics. They've started carrying some novelty zippers. Also another fantastic source is Ghee's web site. Linda carries unusual zippers that can't be found in stores.
