I'm making a pair of Burda pants and the fly zipper has a facing that is sewn on. I was instructed to cut that pattern piece 3 times.

I'm having a hard time visualizing the instructions and there aren't any diagrams.

Does anyone know of a tutorial?

I'm tempted to just put the zipper in the side and call it done.

Mary, do you have any Vogue patterns by the designer Issy Miyake? I know he's not known for his pants, but his model pant seems to be that same tailored pant with a zip with a cut0on facing like you describe. Look through your patterns, and if you'd like me to scan mine (I'm making my first fly-front zip pant in his pattern right now, as it happens) for the directions/visuals I will. but you look first for one of his patterns in your stash (or a similar pant). Sorry, but after sitting through the entire Gone With the Wind tonight, on TCM, I'm beat!. This zipper opens on the left, like a man's, by the way. A friend in my pants class has a different Miyake pattern, and the pants are the same: opening on the man's side.
Let me know,
Regards,
Tina in San Diego
My real email is the best way to reach me, but I'll check here.

Thank you both so much!

I apologize for posting and running - I was trying to finish these up before leaving town to join my family in Tennessee for Thanksgiving.

I think I see it now. Meanwhile I took the easy way out and just put in a side zipper. I'm going to use some muslin and learn how to do this zipper. These Burda pants are wonderful and they deserve a great fly zipper!
