Your zipper opening will need to be opened up 2 - 4 inches below the bottom of the zipper opening. If you've already stitched up to the zipper opening, unpick the 2 - 4 inches below the bottom of the zipper opening.
Cut two 1 - 2 inch strips of your stabilizer 2 inches longer than the length of your zipper. I prefer silk organza, though tricot and/or a light sew-in interfacing work just fine. Baste these strips to the wrong side of your zipper opening with a 1/4 inch seam allowance along the edge.
Leopard and snakeskin are the new neutrals.
