If you saw my previous post Purim Finishing, then you know that I have a few things to finish up on my Queen Esther dress.
First up on the list is adding the zipper.
You will need a zipper and zipper foot. Your zipper will most likely come with directions like what you will see below, I tried to follow them. I really did. I got to step 3 and screwed up, not once, but twice. After ripping the zipper out I tossed the directions and did it my own way.
I know many of you are saying, how could she have so many issues with putting in a zipper? Well, truth be told, I do not have a lot of experience with zippers. Buttons, button holes, grommets, toggles, absolutely, just not zippers.
Not to shabby if I do say so myself.
Next on to fixing the hole in the bodice stitching, hemming the bodice lining and hemming the dress itself!
