Subject: New Video Class - Restyling with Exposed Zippers Date: 10/16/12 12:18 PM

Ok this might be my favorite class so far. Angela is teaching the much awaited exposed zipper class in a fun video format.

- Exposed Zippers on a simple-T
- Adding Zippered Pockets
- Altering a Skirt with Exposed Zippers
- Altering a 2-piece Sleeve Pattern to Allow for Exposed Zippers
-Altering the Front of a Jacket Pattern for Exposed Zippers

I think I might try the exposed zipper on the T first!

Subject: Exposed zipper video class Date: 10/16/12 2:10 PM

Is there a sample video to view? If so, I wasn't able to open it.

My question: Will there be any instruction on how to construct a facing for the zipper on the inside of the garment (to cover the zipper tapes, etc), or does an "exposed" zipper in this class mean only zippers (and their tapes) being applied to the outside of the garments?

Thanks

Subject: restyling zipper video preview Date: 10/16/12 2:44 PM

Deepika, I get this error message and a broken picture link:

Server not found

Firefox can't find the server at player.vimeo.com.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
It may have something to do with my FireFox settings, though I don't know what the problem is - I can't play any youtube videos either.

I will switch to Chrome and see if it's a browser problem.
Thanks anyway

Hi Hazelnut,
This class shows both - how to add an exposed zipper with the fabric edged finished and turned under as well as adding a facing first, then add a zipper. If there is something else about exposed zippers that you need you can always post the question to the class board and I will help in any way. Hope you get the video to work.

Hi, I was wondering if you know how to get hold of these zippers in Australia. Are there any retailers in the US that would ship here? I gather we can use other brands of zippers for the class?
Thanks

These are all Coats & Clark zippers and I will send them a note to see where you might purchase these. Of course you could use any zipper if you have another source. This lesson covers various styles and lengths. I will let you know what I find out :)

Subject: Details about class content Date: 5/26/13 5:40 PM

Hello Angela i am thinking of purchasing your class if it will help me solve dilemma I am having of how to insert exposed zipper to back of a peplum top that is lined BUT zipper finishes about 4" above hem and there is a CB seam all the way to hem.
I made a muslin and know zipper tape/fabric seam will sit further in about 1/2 inch to allow for exposure of tape. Probably some clipping is necessary .So i did but it looks awful. So how to neatly finish that bottom squared off seam with the lining as I want to continue on sewing up and around neckline with the lining. Puzzled on sequence of steps. And to accurately place zipper on fabric so no bubbles from CB seam. Maybe CB seam is done later. My zipper is metallic and separating....hard to find a closed end metallic zipper that length (18"). I have sewed many exposed zippered pockets with no worries but this one stumps me!!
thanks

the lessons are pretty diverse and I'm not sure if it will help you with what you're exact need is, but when you're in the class you can post a photo of what you're working on and I can walk you through fixing it even if it's not in the videos.
