Have you tried fusing interfacing (1/2 inch by the length of the zipper) to each side of the fabric before you sew the zipper in? Sandra Betzina always interfaces each side of the fabric before the zipper is sewn in. This stabilizes the fabric and the zipper stays flat. Hope this helps. By the way, very cute dress. Good job!!!

I have the same problem with zippers but only invisibles. I'll be checking back for suggestions too!

Your dress is divine! That happened to me the last time I put in my zipper. Not sure the remedy.
