Invisible Zipper finish sewing tip

*Hi there new visitors & welcome. If you find this tip helpful be sure to follow Make&Wear for future posts :)*

Sometimes invisible zips worry me that they will come open. Especially when they start at the waist of a skirt. Instead of a hook and eye (which can be difficult to see). I use a fabric loop and button – on the inside.

Before the facing goes on, I catch a loop of lining fabric onto the zipper tape as below-

Then attach the facing as normal :

And all that’s left to do is sew a small flat button onto the opposite side of the zip 🙂 That should save any wardrobe malfunctions! ! Happy sewing, Chris

  2. Great tip for my clients who want invisible zippers in the center front seam of their pants…instead of a hidden snap this would be great…thank you, BeaJay!!!
