I'm working on a dress that has a zipper in the back. It is a vintage pattern that calls for an lapped zipper but I'd like to use an invisible zipper instead. My question is, how do i insert an invisible zipper on a garment with a neck facing? Do you guys know of any tutorials for this out there? TiA!

June

Suo ergo maledicto

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary. - Steve Jobs

New question on this:

To alter a scoop/zipper neck like this with contrast band (like tunic) about 2" wide on the OUTSIDE, what to do? Consider that as the facing flipped out?
Any videos?

The pressing jig used in the linked tutorial is brilliant. The 'words' above can be used in the search function to get back to this post to find the tutorial. I was happily surprised to find out that it is not necessary to fill in the name of a poster when using the search function with the message board. The first pinned post under Miscellaneous contains a list of active 'search terms'.
