Put a Side Zipper into a Skirt

Zippers

So I’ve cut my fabric and started making my 1965 outfit, and so far so good.  Until today, when I got to the point where it said “Insert zipper according to instructions with zipper.” Well my zipper came with no packaging and no instructions, and so, of course, once again I turned to YouTube to figure it out.  And of course, once again, some incredibly generous person had posted a video that taught me exactly what I needed to know.  And what I learned was that all I had to do was tape the zipper in place with some blue tape, sew through the tape, then remove the tape.  It was pretty darn easy, I and I was pretty darn proud of myself.  And I’m sure there will be many more challenges to come with this project…
