Strap seams with zipper
I am making an 8 panel skirt with contrasting strap seams. How do I put in a zipper? I saw a Proenza Shouler skirt in Elle mag that I am copying, but I have not seen it in person. Any thoughts on how to do center back or side seam zipper. Can I do an invisible?
If there is a way to do an invisible, that would be my preference. You just need a seam to put it in....but I'm not sure how to go about this with strap seams. Anyone?
I have been thinking about this since I posted my question and I think I have the answer. I will make half a bound seam on each cb piece basting edge so that I end up with a seam down cb. so that I can put in an invisible zipper. If I baste edge I can sew it as a regular seam instead of one being covered by the strap.
