Invisible Zippers - Don't believe everything you see on YouTube
The great thing about the Internet is that you have access to lots of information about sewing. The bad thing about the Internet is that you have access to lots of information about sewing. I just viewed a very long and detailed video by a well meaning individual on how to insert invisible zippers. It made the whole process seem truly daunting and was fraught with techniques that result in the dreaded homemade look. So yes, there's some great videos out there but be careful!
I can't say enough good things about Janet and Rosebud's video Easy Zippers. And Rosebud has worked in the garment industry and sewn hundreds of miles of zippers so she knows zippers inside out and backwards!
