Whether a newbie or an experienced sewer, invisible zippers can be tricky. They’re even trickier when you have to line up a seam on either side of the zipper, like in a waistband. Hopefully, my tutorial will help you so you don’t end up unpicking the seam and re sewing!

Supplies:

note: all seam allowance are ?”;

Step 1: Apply interfacing suitable for your fabric to the wrong side of the waistband and along zipper opening. I make the interfacing strip at the zipper opening ?”; wider than the seam allowance and 1″; longer than zipper opening. Staystitch just inside waist seam allowance at the top of skirt.

Step 2: Before attaching the zipper to the skirt, we need to press the coils flat so your needle can get close to the teeth. With your zipper right side up and your iron on the synthetic setting (no steam), uncurl the zipper teeth with your finger while pressing open with the tip of your iron. Repeat for the other side.

Step 3: With right sides together, pin one side of waistband to skirt (do not pin both sides!) and sew ?” from waist top edge. Press seam allowances open and grade. Skirt seam allowance should be ?” less than waistband seam allowance to avoid indentation. After, press seam towards waistband (away from skirt).

Grade seam allowance. Skirt seam allowance should be ?”; less than waistband seam allowance. Scissors shown in image are duck-bill.

Step 4: With garment right side up, place zipper face down on fabric. Since skirt seam allowances are ?”; and zipper tape is ?”; (from middle of teeth to edge), I placed zipper ?”; from edge. Also, top of zipper stop (clear, plastic piece) should be ?”; down from fold of waistband. Pin one side of tape in place and then hand baste to secure. Remove pins after basting.

Step 5: Using the BERNINA Invisible-zipper foot #35, sew the zipper tape that you just basted. Before you start to sew, make sure that the zipper coil is in one of the grooves on the presser foot. Also notice that the zipper is face down—this is the way it should be every time you sew an invisible zipper! Stitch to the bottom of the zipper and backstitch twice. This adds extra reinforcement since this point receives a lot of stress from opening/closing.

Step 6: Now we will attach the other side! On the zipper tape that is already sewn, use a pen to mark where the waistband seam is. Close the zipper and mark this point on the other zipper tape. Now open zipper again.

Step 7: Pin and baste other zipper tape to the opposite side of the skirt in the same way as step 4, making sure that the mark we just made is exactly on the waist seam. Before sewing, I like to close zipper to make sure the waist seams line up on either side of the zipper. Sew the zipper as you did the other side. This time, the zipper coil should be in the opposite groove as before.

Step 8: We’re almost finished! Close the zipper and press the zipper opening on right side. It’s okay to press without a press cloth as long as the tip of the iron is lightly touching the zipper opening. You can also remove basting at this time.

Step 9: With wrong side out, pin zipper tapes together at bottom zipper as well as down the seam.

Step 10: Using BERNINA Zipper foot #4, place the edge of the zipper foot ?”; above stitching. Try to get as close to the stitching as possible. It’s okay if they don’t match up—?”; to ?”; is good! Sew down the remainder of the seam.

Step 11: Now that the invisible zipper is installed, we are going to close the waistband. Fold the top of the zipper tape to the side, pin in place, and then pin the inside waistband over the zipper. Use the BERNINA Zipper Foot #4 to sew through all layers. Don’t try to get super close to the teeth –; this will make it difficult to open and close. Also make sure that the bottom of the waistband is folded away from the skirt. Repeat for the opposite side.

We’ve been busy playing with our new embroidery/sewing machines from Brother and we are even giving one away! I love how easy it is to make something personal with embroidery. This is a little piece of art that I made for Gordon’s room in less than 1/2 hour. What a perfect gift for a brand-new baby! This would be beautiful hand-embroidered but you definitely wouldn’t have it done in 20 minutes! Do you need a step-by-step for this one? Probably not but I’ll give it to you anyway, just so you can see how simple it is to make!Remember the Crochet Pennant Garland That was one of our first DIYs!

To prepare for the summer to come, we spoke to Pip Edwards and Claire Tregoning - co-founders of lifestyle clothing brand P.E Nation - to find out what summer is all about for them.
