To finish off the rest of the zipper, zip the zipper and, on the wrong side of the fabric, hold the selvadges together so that the zipper will not get caught in the machine. Start your stitching at 1/8" of an inch to the outside of the last stitch. Stitch down for two inches, change to a regular presser foot, and finish the seam. You can secure the ends of the zipper to the selvadge with a couple of stitches to hold it in place.

    You’d think after all these years i’d invest in an invisable zipper foot!

      Hi Tiffany! Glad you like the instructions. The Intro picture is the finished product (it just may not look like it because I sewed the sample so the wrong side of the fabric is on the outside—oops!). I hope that helps!
