If you’ve never sewn an invisible zipper, it might surprise you that it is the easiest kind of zipper to sew in. Yep, the easiest! Plus, it look so nice on your garment, the zipper just looks a like a seam! So neat and clean. Once you do one, you will never go back! Here’s a quick tutorial.
You will need an invisible zipper foot for this and a regular zipper foot is also handy. I have this invisible zipper foot
which I got in this 7-piece set(great deal!…comes with a regular zipper foot and a ruffler foot!)
First, unzip your zipper and pin one side to the garment.
If you look closely, you’ll see that the zipper teeth are in the right groove and the needle is on the left of the teeth. As you sew, the stitch will be SO close to the zipper feet. Make sure your needle is centered and sew it up. You might be surprised at how easy this is!
Finish sewing to the end and repeat on the other side of your garment. Then zip it up!
Slick! (If your zipper doesn’t go all the way to the bottom of your piece of clothing like this, you’ll have to just sew over the zipper teeth like in the regular zipper tutorial.)
