A Smart Technique for an Imperceptible Zipper | VideoLearn a smart method for inserting a practically invisible zipper for a professional result.
Threads Contributing Editor Kenneth D. King shares a smart method for installing an (almost) invisible zipper.
This process calls for a couple of quick rows of basting stitches to control the zipper’s position and a nifty trick with a hemostat for getting the slider out of the way so you can sew to the zipper end.
When you’ve finished, the transition between the zipper bottom and the seam below it is practically imperceptible, making this zipper as invisible as you can get.
Brilliant technique. Thank you.
Fantastic I have a haemostat. I'm away to try this now. Thank you
This is an excellent video about invisible zipper installation. Thank you!
Just signed up for this Insider deal to be able to read and watch videos. I get to the first videos of Kenneth King and it’s black. I’ve signed in twice now. Getting frustrated. Help please. Sheila in Phoenix
The only way to sew in an invisible zipper! Thanks, Kenneth! Jamie
Thank you so much Kenneth King!! What a great hint.
As always, you show me how to Achieve Awesomeness. And, you're sharing your technique at the perfect time, because I'm planning to insert multiple invisible zippers in pillows and cushions. You've totally solved the bumpy ridge issue!
As usual, a brilliant solution to a frustrating problem!
Lovely, as always. Such a delight to watch your videos.
Kenneth that was great....will share with my students...thanks Linda.
The explanation was very clear. Thank you.
Thank you so much for sharing such a clever technique.
Now my new "forever" technique for sewing invisible zippers for many zippers to come--thank you!
The technique reeks of BRILLIANCE!
Birds of a feather you are - luv'n me some Linda!
Outstanding presentation, explanation, and all by my favorite sewing sensation.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Thank you professor King! What a brilliant method.
Is there a way to adapt this technique to a side seam zipper in a dress? It's definitely my new way of doing open-at-the-top zipper construction. Thank you Prof. King!
Brilliant. So simple once you have shown us, Kenneth, but I would never have thought of it myself! Fortunately, I have a supply of hemostats.
I love this technique- since I watched this and started using it, I no longer fear or dread sewing zippers in. Now, if I could feel as confident about setting in sleeves, lol.....
Brillant technique! Thank you.
Kenneth, thank you for providing such detail instructions. I was able to follow step by step to install my first "bubble-less" invisible zipper. You showing the details step by step helped me greatly. You are a very good instructor. I just signed up for Threads Insider and am so glad that I came across this technique. I am making a dance dress and the zipper looks beautiful now. Thank you!
So glad I saved the hemostat from when I worked as a critical care nurse. Thank you for this wonderful video.
Professor King, I absolutely love this. It's brilliant.
After years of trying to get the invisible zipper to be truly invisible, I found this video and what a game changer!! I finally learned what I was doing wrong and now my zippers are invisible!! Thank you for both a brilliant idea (how to keep the zipper pull out of the way) and the level of detail in the instructions!!!
