Vogue 8593 - exposed zipper

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Success with an exposed zipper - I hadn't done this before! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't use the facings included in the pattern - use the tutorial I link on my blog.

Checked out your blog. Very nice have signed up. Then your flickr posts. Really cute tops. I reaaly like the draped neckline and exposed zipper.....very fashion forward.
PoldaPop answered:
Thanks for signing up, Sheri! It's always nice to know that someone is reading what I write! And I appreciate your comments - good to know I'm on the right track!
Linda74Sews asked:
nice exposed zipper. was it hard to install?
PoldaPop answered:
Thanks, Linda! A little tricky the first time but the Threads instructions were good - they show you how to miter the bottom of the zipper window so that it looks clean from the inside and out.
