    I love this method but noticed that the bottom edge of the facing has not been finished. I would assume that Louise would recommend either serging this edge or double hemming it before beginning the zipper insertion? Thank you!

    Nice technique that I will try but did not understand " remove 1/2" fabric from center back" - thought it meant "cut off" but maybe means "mark off?"
    Also, how does this work with invisible zippers?
