The Snappy Zipper Dress

Added Jul 13, 2012

Nashville, Tenne...






I made this from fabric purchased at a Quilts Inc market conference. My goal was to make it with an interesting zipper in the back. Something like hard metal teeth to contrast with the extremely flower power pattern. However, an industrial strength zipper turned out to be rather painful while sitting down and leaning back into a chair. So after much consternation, I’ve settled on a lime green standard zipper. I think it’s turned out just as well.
