zipper in the front of a dress

Mellie1 | Posted in Talk With Us on

I’m adding a zipper to the front of a dress that has a front seam so my breast-feeding daughter will have easy access.  Do you think it would be weird to use an invisible zipper?  The dress (see attached) is a simple loose-ish shift, but it has a decorative placket around a neck opening so I don’t want to do an exposed zipper that would draw too much attention.  Should I do a traditional zipper with centered application, or go ahead and install an invisible zipper?  Thanks for your advice.

    I think an invisible zipper would be the perfect solution!  The only thing you would see is the small zipper pull.  Go for it!
