Does anyone know how to put in a zipper in a lined jumper/dress the way the Lilly dresses are made? It looks like all the seams are sewn my machine (neck, sleeves, zipper) bu the lining flows freely otherwise. Both the fashion fabric and the lining are sewed to the zipper tape by machine.

I haven't seen her dresses specifically, but this technique might give you the same results: http://sewing.patternreview.com/cgi-bin/readreview.pl?readreview=1&reviewnum=18516

No clue if this is what you are looking for, but check out the zipper tutorials from the Fashion Incubator site. The link I'm giving you is for a centered zipper, facing sewn to the zip (you can do it with the lining too.) Also, it can be done with an invisible zipper, or lapped.
