The following photo tutorial shows the most important steps. The numbers correspond with the numbers of the sewing instruction.


How to sew the zipper you can watch here in two very helpful videos. The first one from Connecting Threads shows how to sew an invisible zipper. Please consider that the textile edge of the zipper matches up with the raw edge of the outer fabric! This is because all schnittchen patterns have a seam allowance of 1 cm.

You can also insert a regular zipper. For this there is another helpful video from MADE Everyday. Check out the second part of the video. For inserting a regular zipper the parts up and below the zipper opening has to be closed and the seam allowances should be pressed.


If you want to sew the tunica with cuff sleeves please follow the tutorial made for a Sewalong for Sewing Pattern Dress Zoe.
