Zipper Slit
Women’s pants close from right to left. That means that you have to pin the facing at the Marked front middle over to the inside. Pin the facing over to the inside at the left slit edge, 5 mm ( 1/5 “) next to the front middle, so that the zipper won’t show. Make sure to cut the seam allowances at the end of the slit (arrow) until you are at about 5mm (1/5”) from the seam. Iron edges (a).

Pin the left slit marking close to the zipper teeth onto the zipper band and stitch neatly with the zipper foot of your sewing machine (b).
