70. Out with the Old and in with the New (zipper) Replacement.

Ah! Zippers

Can make you scream “why me”! And they always require attention at the most inconvenient times, like most jobs you don’t fancy doing. Well this little job had to be done this morning and before it ended up on the mending basket, where it would never to be seen again.

The zipper I ripped out was an invisible one and nice as it is on a dress, it is also not the most practical one to use for a cushion. Luckily like most seamstresses I have a little stash of valuable items in a drawer. This new zipper is much more serviceable and less likely to break. The closed end trouser type, in my estimation a very practical type of zipper.

Luckily this was a half hour job and I was able to get back to more pressing jobs that require my time, like sewing my wrap dress that is almost finished. I just have the side seams left to do. Cross my fingers, this week I’ll wrap up my wrap dress.

Zipper Finished

Not too bad, good enough for my bed.

Next Job the wrap up Wrap Dress!

Yes, the wrap dress is under all this mess. Tomorrow I’ll dig it out.

Question: Which zipper is your favorite? And do you believe practice makes perfect, or at least more confident!

Keep Calm & Sew On
