And here it is from the right side. See, you really can do it without a specialty foot! I was so glad to have figured this out because invisible zippers were one of those things I thought I just couldn't do.

    So helpful. Saved me from buying the invisible zipper foot. I made the whole process easier still by using narrow fusible web or fabric glue to place the zip rather than pinning and tacking.

    I sew the invisible zipper this way as well, I like the end result much better than doing it with the special invis. zip foot. I think I wasted money on buying that foot! Great tutorial.

    I made my first perfect invisible zip using this technique!! So far all the ‘helpful hints’ I have read (including the Burda magazine) were vert complicated and required a special foot – which I don’t have… I think what made a big difference is ironing the zipper so that coil is flat – what a simple and brilliant idea!! I can’t thank you enough for that! Very very helpful and makes sewing invisible zippers a stroll in the park!

    Thank you again! Andrea
