I’m making a long bias-cut skirt from charmeuse and chiffon. I’ve been worrying about the center back zipper for a week now. Came to the sewing room tonight determined to at least baste it in, then decided that asking for advice on the job would allow me to put it off a while longer.
Both the fabrics are somewhat unstable on their own, together they are a challenge. This is for a wedding dress so the center back is very important. My concern is that the weight of the fabric won’t be enough to cause the end of the zipper to lay where it should and that there will be a tail wagging down the isle. I bought an invisible zipper, then decided that maybe I would be better off with a light weight regular zipper. Can’t find one in town. Any suggestions, pitfalls to avoid or other advice?
