This pattern is perfect for anyone who is up for the challenge of inserting an invisible zipper. There is also hand sewing required for this style, however you can choose to use the sewing machine for all steps if you would prefer. There is a YouTube video tutorial available HERE. This will help you out with every step along the way. The whole garment can be made from start to finish in around 4-5 hours. Always remember to take your time and make a mock up in a cheaper fabric before you begin on the final project. This will allow you to make any alterations before you begin ensuring perfect fit.
