process It's only at first glance that it seems difficult to sew a secret zipper. In fact, it's pretty easy. You just need to follow the step-by-step instructions and then you will succeed!

Before sewing on the sewing machine the seam of the future skirt is better not to grind, but to sweep. If you have a fabric that stretches, then it is better to glue it with nonwoven. Sweep the seam allowances under the zipper. This is done in order to avoid skewing on the finished product.

Sweep the seam allowances with an overlock or sew them with an oblique silk bake. Then walk through the iron at the seams, first ironing, and then ironing them.

We put a zipper on the sour cream stitch. The teeth must lie exactly on the seam. We pin with pins, passing them only under the denticles. The lock can be pushed out to make it more comfortable.

We take zippers to the fabric, grabbing just one layer. This is very important, because otherwise, the finished product can wrinkle. We sew the zipper in the middle and take off the pins.

Sew the zipper on the typewriter. It is necessary to bend the denticles and make a line under them. We sew the teeth to the end and make a bite. Do not forget that you do not need to sew a lightning tip!
