Sydney Again., A...
There are so many tutorials on how to put a zip in but hardly any on finishing the top of a zip.
I struggled for years trying to make my zip perfect at the top and couldn't work out how to make it look shop finished. I finally worked out a way in my sleep.
Purple fabric is the outside.
Green fabric is the lining.
I used silk and an invisible zip.
