Just installed my first separating zipper in my first Very Easy Very Vogue Pattern (Jacket and Pants) #9574. It was scarry cause I had never done it before, but I did get it in. No absolutely satisfied with the stitching but I can’t really see myself taking it out now. The pattern called for a 20″ zipper but noted that it would have to be trimmed at the top after it was applied. This is the part I was scared of, but it wasn’t that bad.
The jacket has a collar and I think I may have sewned the zipper too close to the top of the jacket neck edge. Any tips on sewing a separating zipper in???? Maybe I should have asked this question before I started – one day I will learn to do that.
