Having a hard time with your zipper? Centered zipper, fly front, lapped zipper, exposed zipper pocket and invisible zipper: these five zipper techniques are a must for any clothes construction.  Learn the centered zipper with a fool proof technique that will never shift again when inserting it!

See how to design fly front zippers with a deep placket to avoid the zipper or zipper pull from showing on the center front of your pants or jeans along with adding in the zipper shield. Lapped zipper is where all the construction is to one side and is always great for most dresses, pants, and skirts. An invisible zipper is not as hard to sew as you might think; the secret is the pressing of the zipper before sewing. Exposed zipper pocket is great for outerwear jackets; see how the pocket lining makes the pocket opening for easy construction.
