I was simply delighted to learn your “Fear Not the Zipper” technique! I think back when my mother was teaching me how to put in a zipper and I had made my mind up then and there, that the zipper was my nemesis. Not now…My mother would have loved this version. Thank you!
I’m so happy that this helped you get over your fear of the zipper. Have fun!!!
Hah! This is surprisingly genius!
Who knew!!!!! 🙂
Fantastic idea! Thanks so much for sharing.
You are so very welcome, Margie! If what I do makes sewing more enjoyable for you, I’m happy!
Thank you thank you thank you! I’ve been bungling around the zipper slider for years! I can’t wait to try this on my daughter’s (refashioned, thankyou) pencil skirts. Beth, you are an inspiration!
