I ended up skipping the back closure like Lauren did and just sewed the band closed. I add buttons for show. I got the buttons from a big bag of miscellaneous buttons that my mom had because apparently she was secretly collecting buttons lol. I got the invisible zipper from Fine Fabrics in Atlanta while I was there a little more than 2 weeks ago. I am extremely proud of my zipper insertion! It meets at the top perfectly! I veered away from the instructions to get done. I made sure to interface both sides of the zipper area and inserted the zip BEFORE sewing the lining and the fabric together. I don't know how to explain the whole process, but I get a clean connection between the fabric, the zip and the lining.
|forgive those loose threads. I got them when I got home lol|
|forgot to attach my label to the bodice back so I hand-sewed it down with the bodice lining.|
