Sewing in zips can be tricky and is a constant source of stress for home dressmakers. Many people avoid them altogether. But with most skirts, trousers and dress styles requiring a zip, don’t avoid them any longer. They’re easy when you know how.

This short afternoon session will show you how to sew in a standard skirt/dress zip using the lapped method.  In addition, I’ll demonstrate how to sew in a concealed zip (sometimes known as an invisible zip).  This technique is definitely one to know as it gives such a professional finish to garments; you’d never know there was a zip there at all.

You’ll be able to follow both techniques, step-by-step, and master these essential garment-construction skills – finally!

All materials and zips included.
