Where on pattern pieces will I find where I should place the zipper? This is my first attempt as I'm not an experienced sewer and the instructions don't cover what the markings are with the exception of the grainline. Thanks

On the pattern piece for the center back, about 20" or so down from the top (neck) end, there will be a circle in the seam allowance - larger than a dot. That's where the zipper ends. So the bottom (closed end) of the zipper goes on the circle and extends up to the neckline.

Are you making this pattern up online with Craftsy.com? The couse with Susan is fantastic. Have fun. :-D
