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

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.
