Check out our in-depth video on sewing an invisible zip! This tutorial was created as part of the extra content for theElla skirt, which you can buy here. But naturally, you can use this tutorial for any pattern which uses an invisible zip!
I have been developing my invisible zip technique for years, and have tried every way of sewing them! I have combined all the things I've learned along the way into my own ultimate method. I absolutely love this pinless way of sewing. And if it scares you to sew without pins, don't worry, I have some handling tips, and even some examples that show you what not to do. If you still prefer to use pins, of course that's okay too! Sewing is all about doing it the way that makes you happy.
It's one of my favourite times...sharing tester makes for our latest release!
We always get incredible testers, and this time was no exception. During testing, I allow testers to make small changes to their makes so they can personalise it to their preferences (after all, isn't that the best part about sewing?). Of course, I make sure that they don't do anything drastic, or it wouldn't be a very good pattern test! It is often a great way to get even more inspiration for the versatility of the pattern, and ideas for hacks. If the testers in these pictures have made any alterations to the style, I will point them out. I hope it inspires you for the potential of this pattern! Enjoy looking at all the lovely pictures of their makes!
It's launch week for the Ella skirt! The Ella skirt is a gathered skirt with a subtle high-low hem. It comes in three different lengths, and has three different pocket options, so you can mix and match for your perfect look.
