We’re so excited about zippers! That’s right…zippers!

Makes me look at zippers in a whole new way!

I just posted a photo of my knit motorcycle jacket with exposed C&C zipper on your flicker set. To dress up my C&C zipper, I replaced the zipper pull and slider with one in my stash. I also trimmed the zipper tape (as well as the collar and lapels) with cotton twill tape. Note that I've also entered this jacket in PR's Refashion/Repurpose contest.

My first exposed zipper project finished! Definately not my last either. I can't wait to make something else. The selection of C&C fashion zippers at Hancocks is great!

I like this exposed zipper trend. I used it on my Derby Day Peony dress and on the refashioned leather skirt. The pleather jacket was a recent one that I thought you'd like to see. It's not that hard to do but it did make me take a deep breath before I did the exposed zip on the eyelet dress. I hope the local retailers will start to stock these cool looking zippers soon. Until then, I'll continue to order them online:)

I've just added my exposed zipper dress - I made this early in my return to sewing in 2012. The zipper was tricky but fun. And I should post a review of the pattern on Pattern Review!

My first exposed zipper! I hope you like my dress with the centre back exposed zipper. I love the edgey dramatic statement they make. Sewing this zipper was a little tricky - I had to negotiate it through a lined peplum, the underskirt and the lined bodice! I'm very pleased with the result. Thanks! Oh, and my entry is the black and white dress with lime green panel lines, posted with the name "Handmade Sewing Studio".

I did my second exposed zipper dress this summer. I checked out how to do it online at Threads and had no problem putting it together. My daughter loves it and now that winter is here it is great with a turtleneck under it and some boots. I also found a flower made with zippers and might try some shoe bows.

The idea is a great one, I'm going to use the zipper buttons on some couch pillows I am making. One improvement to consider on the video is to move your left hand from blocking what you are creating.

I'm so excited to see all the zipper creations.
