Salt Lake City, ...
Now, its time to add your zipper to the lining. Keep in mind that I’m using a trusty standard metal zipper (a lovely Riri number from New York, no less). To insert, stitch the zipper tape to the lining with the zipper’s wrong side pinned to the lining’s right side. In other words, if you were to put the lining on at this point, the zipper would be facing outward from the body. Hopefully that gives you an idea, because it tends to feel a little backwards. Oh and do make sure that you’ve changed over to your zipper foot – that will make this a whole bunch easier.
