Since I started sewing this summer, I haven’t quite gotten an invisible zipper right. They keep turning out wavy, bubbling and puckering the garment, never laying flat. With back zippers, I think the problem might be that I have swayback, and hadn’t thought to do swayback alterations, but my side zips are turning out mighty strange as well. Maybe I need to interface them, and maybe it’s something else. I put up pictures to illustrate what I mean, and an article begging for help on my blog mollytov.com
Any advice or helpful links would be greatly appreciated! Thank you all so much! I’ve been creeping this forum and all your projects for some time now, and it’s been super helpful to me in starting my own sewing journey! Mucho love Burda homies!
