First of all I have to sing the praises of invisible zippers! These zippers are the easiest to install (after the learning curve), and they look far better than any other zipper!
As I was preparing these photos I remembered that I called a sewing supply company a few years ago and I ordered some invisible zippers from a fellow over the phone. I said "I want four black 22" invisible zippers" to which he responded "how will you know if we sent them when you open the box"? That still makes me smile!!!
I am going to show the installation of an invisible zipper through a waist band of a different color. This surely can be tricky, but with these instructions you should be able to master this sewing challenge too!
I sew the zipper tape to the right side of the fabric. There are many types of machine feet that are designed for this task. I actually use my regular zipper foot and just roll the teeth back a bit so that I can get the stitches very close to the teeth.
AND while I was preparing this tutorial I also was preparing a loaf of Sally Lunn Cinnamon Bread. It is a no-knead yeast bread that is really delicious!
