Step 10 Zip

Sew invisible zip to the back open­ing edges, see the “Helpful Hint“ on ­page 28. Begin at neck edge and ­leave top ends of zip tapes extend­ing. Stitch the cen­tre back seam from the vent to the zip. Press seam allowances open. Press left vent fac­ing to inside and trim 1.5 cm (5/8 in) from the marked “left edge“ line. Turn the right vent underlap onto the left back. To avoid needing to clip the allowance, press the allow­ance of the right back under, above the vent, tapering as you go. On the right back, press the vent facing to the inside. Top­stitch left back diagonally at top of vent as marked, ­catching the underlap. Turn in top ends of zip tapes and sew to neck edge, together with seam allow­ances.
