I remember sewing in a zipper many years ago. What a nightmare! The woman who was teaching me ending up sewing in the whole zipper. But, your tutorial shows a simpler process. I may have to give zippers another chance. I have been using other alternatives. Thank you!

Thank you so much for this tutorial! I am definitely a BEGINNER, but I have about three zippers that I need to fix on my skirts and dresses. I was about to admit defeat and get rid of them, but now I think I might try a few sample zippers with your techniques and tackle those projects!

very nicely done! May I suggest using a lightweight fusible interfacing on the zipper seam allownce only, this adds support to any zipper, gives a better eye appeal and prsses better too!

Well done. I like the idea of attaching a piece of cord to the zipper tab to make it easier to move the slider while inserting the zipper. Always learning new things on this great website!!
