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.
