Lapped zipper

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I previously tried a lapped zipper on a different project and it was a complete fail. I followed the directions in this course and my next lapped zipper went in flawlessly! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Watch the video and do the steps exactly as shown, even if you don't understand why! More info on my blog: www.110creations.blogspot.com

What you will need

  • Cotton chambray.

Q&A with 110 Creations

Ipanema asked:
Bravo!!! I'm finally going to start sewing again after not having done so for quite a few years. i think this tutorial/short class will bolster my confidence in one area that can be difficult to master. This class, along with many others offered by craftsy will help me become creative once more. Craftsy, i commend you for your effort to reach seamstresses at all levels.
110 Creations answered:
This class definitely helped me get the confidence to sew zippers, I highly recommend it!
Gillian Marie asked:
This looks great, I love the fabric. I see you put the lap in the same way I did. I gather it's the wrong way round (see comments on my project).
110 Creations answered:
Thanks for commenting! I was thinking about doing an invisible zip next time around with this pattern, so I was glad to read the comments on your project. And I'm happy to hear I'm not the only one sewing the lap the wrong way!!
