when inserting a Zipper
Insert your zipper
at the earliest stages possible during the construction of your garment.
(It is easier to attach a zipper to flat fabric than a curved bulky one
with other pieces of the garment attached.)
Use a Zipper Foot
attachment whenever possible.
Do not pin
your zipper on.
Tack and press your
garment first. Once the zipper is sewn in it is impossible to iron in that
area. Make sure the hot iron does not touch the nylon teeth of the zipper.
Tack and hand stitch
the zipper into place with the teeth closed.
