How to Sew an Invisible Zipper

Posted on

Here’s a new video tutorial for inserting an invisible zipper… and the best part is that you don’t need an invisible zipper foot! The package will say you do, but I say, “RULES! BAH! WHO NEEDS RULES?”

Invisible/hidden zippers are great for evening wear or any garment with delicate sensibilities that may be offended by the crassness of a visible zipper. THE HORROR!

But really though, they look really classy, and they’re not too tricky. Less tricky than a standard zipper, in a lot of ways, so give it a try!
