How to Sew an Invisible Zipper

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!

This tutorial was filmed using a Creative Labs Vado HD Digital Video Camera, a Canon Rebel (for still shots), and edited in Sony Vegas Movie Studio.

  1. This is such a great tutorial!!! Thank you so much for this! I have one question though: I am making a dress in which the bodice is going to be lined… how does this (if at all) affect the sewing of the invisible zipper???
