Project

Invisible zipper on pieced dress

What are you most proud of? The first time I set the second half of the zipper I wasn't paying attention and, while the zipper was set nicely, I found I had turned my dress into a torus! I'm proud that this didn't frustrate me to the point of carelessness, and I was able to fairly quickly rip out the bad half and reset it with good results. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Invest in an invisible zipper foot. It really makes life easier.
