Invisible zipper fix?

suesew | Posted in General Sewing Info on

Has anyone mastered the art of putting a zipper pull back on an invisible zipper? I can do it on nylon or metal zips, but this one is beyond me.

    Hi there,

    I am guessing that you zipped it right off the end, as I have done more times than I want to admit.
    I'm successful a little more than half the time getting these back on.

    Here's how I do it. Sorry if it is vague:
    Always start on the bottom of the zipper, since the zipper pull is wider at the top
    Gently seperate the teeth at the bottom, about 1/8"
    Pinch the ends together and flatten the teeth so the right sides of the zipper are against each other
    Work the teeth into the top of the pull. You might need too "shimmy" the zipper a bit
    If you manage to get the first part of the zipper through the pull evenly (start over if it is uneven), take hold of the part below the pull (it should be zipped closed), and pull gently

    Good luck!
    Juliette
