    Hi Claire, Zipper, did you Reinforce zipper area with light weight interfacing like tricot???.

    The other suggestion is to sew the zipper on jersey on both sides same directions, like both from top down or both from the bottom up.

    Let me know how it goes, Patti

      Hi Patti – the main issue was the style of the top – it was supposed to be blousey…so I gathered in the material and then hand sewed in the zipper – works a treat and has added a nice feature down the spine :)

      Thanks for the suggestions though :)

      Hi Patti – I did look for that as well. I managed to find some (under Ban roll) from a company in Norway in the end (much cheaper on postage).
