This. . .
. . . looks way better than this:
As you may have already guessed, I fixed the zipper on my New Look 6808. I flipped the zipper right-side-up, sewed a normal seam at top and bottom, and centered the zipper between.
I did forget to interface–or rather, I chose not to because it felt like a bother.
I also chose to forgo the Hong Kong seams choosing rather to zig-zag over the zipper tape and seam allowance. It doesn’t look fantastic, but it also didn’t require the cutting of strips.
And that’s pretty much all I did. It was not a great weekend, especially when you consider that I’ve not yet begun my fall sewing. . . and we’re halfway through October.
I still have time, right? It’s hovering around the 70s this week. No need to panic. Right? Right?!?!?
