    I can do a tutorial for that too if you like.

    I thought of an easy way to do that after I had done this tutorial.

    Thanks for the post. I followed every step till the end, upon which I was a little disappointed – nothing wrong with your tutorial. Its just that I was hoping to learn how to machine sew the lining onto the zipper tape in? stead of hand stitching. I always look at store bought clothes and the lining is always perfectly sewn onto the zipper tape but I have never learned how to immitate that. Any idea how to do that, please?
