Step 7 Zip halves

Separate the zip halves. Pin halves of zip right side up to inside peplum and front facings (right side of fabric) beginning at bottom edge, so that edge of each zip tape meets exactly with seam line of front edge and seam allowance extends. Stith along centre of each zip tape. Lay teeth of zip forward and press seam allowances onto facing and peplum. Lay facing and inside peplum right sides together with jacket so that zip teeth meet with seam line of front edges and allowances of front edges extend. Pin neck edges and lower edges of peplum each to¬gether. Fold allowances of front edges to outside and pin to neck edge and to lower edge of peplum. Stitch along neck edge and lower edge of peplum. Trim seam allowances. Turn facing and inside peplum to inside. Press allowances on front edges of front pieces and outer peplum to inside. Baste halves of zip with facings and inside peplum under front edges so that zip teeth are covered. Sew facings to front allowances, above zip. Topstitch 7 mm (1/4 in) from front edges.
