For my final project in my Flat Patternmaking class, I had to draft a complete pattern from scratch and construct it. I’m REALLY in love with my dress design that has a mandarin collar and a pleated back. My only concern is where do I add my invisible zipper? I CANNOT but it in the back because it will interrupt my pleating detail, but I need to have one because of my collar.
My idea is to add two invisible zippers. One on the side seam, (so it fits nicely through the waist) and one in the shoulder seam (so it fits through the head.)
My question is How would a shoulder side seam zipper look? Is it a crazy idea or do people actually do it? what are some tips for sewing in a zipper in this area?
