I have spent a ton of time experimenting and taking lessons from experts to make my skirts and dresses look like high-end ready to wear. I don't like the instructions that come with invisible zippers--my method closes the seam BEFORE inserting the zipper. I also have a technique to make the top of the zipper meet perfectly--no "smile". I also attach my lining to the zipper by machine--not hand. It had a super professional look! This is not a full pattern--but just instructions for zipper and lining. I've had some requests for my method and just wanted to share! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knowledge of skirt construction with lining

Supplies Needed

  • skirt pattern, fashion fabric, lining, invisible zipper

My main hobby is sewing. My mom was an excellent seamstress and I started learning from her. I made clothes for my self many years ago. Then I dropped out and focused on career. Then I made many clothes for my daughter--smocking, heirloom, and many fancy things. Quilted some. My focus now is making professional clothes for my 24 year old daughter who lives 2000 miles away. So, fitting is biggest problem. Attended a month course in Italy--it was WOW! Want to learn prof techniques that are not in pattern instructions.
