With an invisible zipper foot attached to your sewing machine, drop your foot down onto the zipper making sure to catch the zipper coil into the groove under the foot. This helps in turning the teeth coils out of the way so that the machine can stitch behind the teeth. Position your needle down to start and sew zipper carefully down from the waist to zipper notch. Note: this is why a slightly longer 20cm invisible zip is needed for a 18cm opening. Do not sew all the way down to the bottom of the zip. Backstitch at end.
